The Lyrics

I hope that some of these questions will be asked (and answered) politely in the numerous Town Hall meetings across the USA during the Congressional recess. I took the introduction from Billie Holiday and the remaining sung stanzas from The Ink Spots.
If your health's in doubt, buy GOV.
Worried? Then shout, "Why GOV?"
Don't fall next year
When patient pools are chancy. Fear!

If Obama cared, as his words can say;
If Obama cared, would I reel and sway?
Just reading the government's health-care bill
Is what makes my head go 'round and 'round
While I start bland chill.

If he really cared, would he heed the blame?
Would my Medicare be cut and send docs whence they came?
And would those insured insist that government's unfair?
Would all this ensue if our Congress shared it too?

If ObamaCare should go down in flame,
Would its ev'ry snare weaken and bend SOC justice lame?
And would I be sure we still had government to spare?
Could all this come true if Obama scared us blue?
GOV is, of course, big government. SOC is pronounced like the first syllable of "potion", is short for "social". Some say "Soc Security".

Here's a Monday morning "quarter back" in change: "patient pools are" in line 4 to "bone replacement's" and "If Obama cared" in line 6 to "Guidelines hidden bared".

It does seem that the bill is somewhat care-less in construction

Thanks, OMR. I agree with Fg. In line 4, "bone retooling's" is a better match to "only foolish" in the OS. In line 12, "public plan's" instead of "government's" clarifies my meaning.
