News That Didn’t Happen – But Probably Did
The following is a news report that did not occur.
The group was reported to be especially pleased that while Republicans were primarily responsible for thwarting health care reform at every turn, it is the Democratic administration that is taking the blame. “No one is paying attention to the fact that we are the ones that have put numerous roadblocks in the way of an effective implementation” said a member of the group, and “we are all laughing at how the press is so ignorant and lazy that they are reporting our spin instead of what is really happening."
Encouraged by this success Republican legislators have vowed to make the misery that low income families are suffering from the problems with health care insurance carry over to food and nutrition programs and home heating assistance. The group suggested that they would have overwhelming success in getting contributions from the National Association of Greedy Billionaires and similar organizations once they had conclusive evidence that people were made hungry, cold and homeless by Republican policies.
