The Lyrics

The "most productive U.S. Congress ever" is finally history. Now we can "wring out the old year and bring in the new" to the tune of TOS.
Should lame-duck Congress be forgot,
And how they sought to bind?
Should One-Eleventh be forgot,
Recalling One-Oh-Nine?

For all their language fine I hear,
For all their language fine,
They wake not up from blindness yet
To all your pangs and mine.

The cure post-yule: freeze spending, stop!
Then deficits decline,
And we'll take a cut o' spineless set;
In Twenty-Twelve they'll whine.

For all their language fine I hear,
For all their language fine,
They wake not up from blindness yet
To all your pangs and mine.

ObamaCare they stoutly praise
As waivers now incline. [1]
They've pondered many a source of loot,
Installing tax (or fine?). [2]

For all their language fine I hear,
For all their language fine,
They wake not up from blindness yet
To all your pangs and mine.

E.P.A. thwarts dead carbon burn, [3]
Funds corn, wind, sun, kills mine(s).
Of seas, they've been afraid for shores
Since B.P. sank in brine.

For all their language fine I hear,
For all their language fine,
They wake not up from blindness yet
To all your pangs and mine.

They rarely stand, then must pretend,
And we must stand in line. [4]
They'll take the rights good millions sought. [5]
Forestall that gang's design!

For all their language fine I hear,
For all their language fine,
They wake not up from blindness yet
To all your pangs and mine.
[1] In recent count, 222 businesses had been exempted for a year from upgrading employee insurance to the federal standard.
[2] The penalty for not buying insurance has been called either.
[3] Regulates carbon as a pollutant (since Congress failed to pass cap-and-trade) and favors renewable energy.
[4] At airports or for any government service.
[5] Since 1607 and into the future.

BJM - Quite a bill of indictment! And now, Dr. Michael Berwick, the administrator of Obamacare, is revealing that the "Life Review" procedures are mandatory in the guise of "regulations" conveniently left out of the bill! Fine parody! Happy New Year!

OMR: Thanks; I wish I had been able to add more counts, but they didn't fit TOS.
I heard that end-of-life counseling was in the House bill, but not in the Senate bill "deemed passed" by the House. There it was only every 5 years, but new regs make it annual! Nancy Pelosi must be smiling in San Fran, and Barack Obama in Hawaii. :=(

Ah, Barry, it makes me want to reach for the Scotch; I can almost hear the bagpipes! I do believe Robbie Burns would approve of your reworking of his poetry. Alas, I must wait until Happy Hour, but toast you I shall when the Hour arrives. And we shall keep our powder dry for 2012! Meanwhile, your lyrics are the ones that shall be sung at our New Year's Eve party.

DM: Thanks; I wish I could be listening at your party. Quaff one for me.
I should have said "dead carbon" refers to any fossil fuel.
There's no 1-1-1 vote yet; I'd "re-gift" it to the 111th Congress.
