The Lyrics

As the dreaded "Sequester" deadline looms in the U.S.A., I revised TOS to satirize the standoff between the Oval Office and Capitol Hill.
[President Obama]
Just a little tax hike will grow my strong base,
And you will make me happy, my destiny raise.
Revenue I've found; see, I won't need to save,
'Cause just a little tax hike is all that I crave.

Ever since the Fed began, [1] taxes fueled this land.
Woodrow Wilson set the pace and started to expand.
Lyndon Johnson vowed to grow the poor's dependency. [2]
Come, Barack, and you will plainly see

That just a little cuttin' will slow your wrong ways,
And you will make us happy the debt ceiling stays.
Write your budget soundly, then we will behave,
'Cause just a little cuttin' will not be so grave.

[President Obama]
I don't believe you really know that folks do not love you.
If you did, you'd loopholes sack and take high revenue.
Your ties, [3] your flips, your Grover Norquist schemes do linger yet.
I'll forgive but please don't you forget

That just one little tax hike will show my strong case,
And two will make me happy; I'll test second phase.
With alarms I'll pound theme, and I'll see you cave;
With dust, my little shovel fills over your grave. [4]
[1] The Federal Reserve and income tax are 100 years old (Civil War excepted).
[2] The "Great Society"
[3] ... to the "rich"
[4] Politically, I mean, for the party.

BJM - Fine job on this "stand-off standard". Something even more bone-chilling is happening. The (small) majority of voters who were previously merely misguided are now becoming apathetic. Again, good work. ;D
