(Political Satire) WASHINGTON — Republican strategists announced today that they had finally come up with a brilliant replacement for the Affordable Care Act.
“As soon as January 20th, ” a spokesperson said, “We fully intend to immediately repeal and replace the most disastrous program in American history– Obamacare.”
When asked just what the replacement would be, the spokesman said, “Obamacare. People really seem to like a lot of it, so we thought, you know, we’d try it for a couple of years.”
When The Failing Times reached out to G.O.P. leaders for comment, a spokesperson for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said there would still be changes to the law.
“We don’t like the name,” the spokesperson said. “We might want to call it ‘Trumpcare’ or ‘Republicare.’ Something snappy, like that. Americans are tired of Obamacare. It reminds them of one of the most popular Presidents in the modern age.”
When The Failing Times cited a survey saying 77% of people with coverage received by Obamacare were happy, the spokesman said, “That’s why we’re listening and have decided to replace the failed health program with Obamacare.”
When told about the G.O.P.’s plan, President Obama did a spit take with his eggnog.
