The Lyrics

Over six years ago, when Obamacare was full of promise, I wrote this parody of Dr. Seuss with an optimistic ending. Today, premiums and deductibles are rising every year, and several major insurance companies are opting out of the plan, so I feel compelled to revise the last few stanzas..
You do not like it, so you say.
Try it! Try it, and you may.
Try it and you may, I say.

Sir! If you'll waive penalty,
I will try it. Soon we'll see ....

Say! I'd like that health care plan!
I could! I'd like it, Barack man
If it would save me one G-note,
Then I would use it while costs bloat.
And I will use it should health wane,
When sin leaves mark or causes pain,
And when I'm dizzy ... if it's free.
It is so good, my subsidy!

So I will buy it when I'm sick;
Then I will use it very quick.
And I will lose it when I'm cured,
And I'll refuse it, uninsured.
And my excuse: it's here to share.
Yea, I'll abuse it and won't care!

I do so like that health care plan!
Thank you! Adieu, Barack man!

Those who get subsidies or take advantage of the protection of pre-existing conditions may still get a bargain.

Change "buy" to "choose" in line 14 & "and won't" to "as free" in line 19 to follow Seussical rhyming better.
