    Ok...ok....let's get on with this healthcare thing because we apparently need to also talk about something called 'deforestation' after that!

    About to gets his hands on an advanced copy of 'Going Rogue' , Boehner can't believe a book by Palin is almost over his head.

    John Boehner says,"this is nothing , the first stack was this high and this wide"! Someone heckled, "YOU LIE"!

    After the paperwork was filed, the U.S. Government was deemed ineligible for medical coverage because it had a pre existing condition....brain freeze.

    "SHAZAM!" And there were OOOHs and AHHHs as Mr. Boehner produced The Man Without Qualities out of thin air.

    Let me be clear, when this bill is edited down to twenty-five words or less, the Republican caucus will peruse it - provided, we are given at least twenty-five weeks to fine-tooth-comb-it.

    Our platform is simple and well-reasoned.... Never vote in favor of a bill that weighs more than 5 lbs.

    It is simply impossible to ram this bill down people's throat!

    I might not have gone to one of those high-falutin' university's like Barney Frank, but I know one thing - this health care bill looks like something scribbled by Leo Tolstoy.

    Paperwork: I think there’s a potential market out there.

    C'mon Mr. Boehner, we've included a short comic strip on every other page to keep your interest...there's Marmaduke, Garfield, Dilbert, Peanuts, Heathcliff...and on and on.

    Now we know why Congress has trouble passing the healthcare reform bill ; who wants to read through all this paperwork and still have to vote?

    The complete IRONY of this "so called" health care bill is that it will do nothing to help treat the paper cut I just got lifting this thing.

    Definition of 'irony': getting massive paper cuts while handling the Health Care Reform Bill.

    Just like when Tyra taught Larry King, John Boehner demonstrates how to "smize"...smile with his eyes.
