Congress Has Its Own Gym?
(And it's still open? But the National Parks Aren't?)

To vote for a Tea Bagger or to drive a car,
Tea Baggers insist on an ID to prove who you are.
So why put up a stink if the government nails you
For a reasonable fee to fight whatever ails you?

You don't want to vote or drive? Who's holding their breath?
Can't get treatments for cancer? That can mean life or death.
Can't afford chemotherapy? You need insurance aid?
You're no Warren Buffett who's got it made?

Nor are you a Congressman whose gym has stayed open.
You're a National Park tourist who's quietly hopin'
For some health insurance that you can afford.
Not a Congressional Cadillac Plan. You'll settle for Ford.
