Spaghetti: the GOP healthcare plan

Many of the members of this fine website have wondered what the Republicans plan to replace Obamacare with if they ever manage to repeal it. Some of us say they don't have one.

That's not exactly true. They have one. It involves spaghetti.

If you go to small towns and read their weeklies, you'll find frequent references to Medical Fundraising Dinners. "Jane Doe was recently diagnosed with advanced lung cancer from a lifetime of living in a mining town. She needs $2 million to pay her medical bills, so a fundraising dinner will be held at Fourth Street Holiness Church on Thursday at 6 p.m. Spaghetti will be served."

Spaghetti is always served.

With full implementation of Pastacare, you won't ever need to cook again. We the People can just go to fundraising meals three times a day...soon there will be Pancakecare, raising money over buckwheats and coffee, and Tunacare, raising money over fish sammies at noon.

Republicans are famed for lack of forethought, and so it is with Pastacare. Three questions come to mind.

The first is, how much spaghetti does one need to sell to pay for a heart valve? Does that much exist?

Second is, what happens when people can not stand to eat another strand?

And the most important: isn't health insurance better?

2. That's only half the plan.

 

The other half is a large jar, hole in the top, pic of a kid on the front, sitting on the counter at the mini-mart.

3. best word ever "Pastacare"

Thanks for this post, it really gets to one side of the issue. On the other side, I love the idea of making fun of the so called "serious" alternatives.
