Perhaps doctors can cure their problems

Now that the right thing has been done on health care, I hope that physicians in the U.S. can cure the tea-partiers, lying media shills and Republican members of Congress of their bitterness, cynicism and confusion.

And while these doctors are at it, I hope they give special attention to healing Republicans suffering from heart failure. These poor sick hearts whose goals are to see Obama fail, bring the government down and perpetuate suffering by denying hard-working Americans affordable health care need treatment immediately!

Maybe now even Newt Gingrich with his pre-existing heartlessness (abandoning his first wife when she had cancer) can get a heart transplant at a reasonable price.

It takes healthy hearts to act courageously, and Democrats acted with courageous intelligence by putting the country and the well-being of its citizens first. In 2010 I intend to put my heart into seeing Democrats who voted for this bill get what they deserve, to be re-elected to Congress.
