|From Album 5|
After all, if you’re not actually going to drive it, why not buy a Yugo?
Bonus joke: Why did Yugos have rear window heaters/defrosters? To keep your hands warm while you pushed.
Anyway, while my only-slightly-less-disappointing-Senator’s proposal is…actually not god-awful terrible, given the circumstances, it’s still worth noting that the “plans” everyone is suddenly so keen on saving…are the Yugos of private health insurance…NOT Fords, Representative Blackburn.
The only thing they “provided” was a relatively modest revenue stream to insurance companies — companies that make protection rackets almost look honorable, as anyone who’s ever been jacked around, by, oh, for example, Mutual of Fucking Omaha-and-for-that-matter-anyone-and-anything-else-for-a-few-extra-nickels-on-the-bottom-line can confirm. Watching this sudden spate of concern for these bottom feeders really is rich.
