(Washington) - In a major political move to eliminate poverty in America, the Democratically controlled U.S. Congress today passed a law to deport all people in the U.S. earning less than $30,000 a year.
Students, individuals under the age of 21 and illegal immigrants are exempt from the deportation.
Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass) proclaimed, "Finally, in an important political year, Democrats have eliminated poverty in my, I mean our, country. This has been a political dream of mine for over 40 years and now it's a reality and, as a rich liberal, I won't have to pretend to worry about the poor anymore."
A massive deportation of tens of millions of poor people from America will be difficult for the government. No other country on the planet would even dream of taking in tens of millions of undocumented poor so where will America's poor be deported to? Senator John Edwards, (D-North Carolina) suggested, "Perhaps we can bribe one of those Third World nations to take them in, in exchange for us giving them nuclear weapons."
When asked about the violation of the Constitutional rights of American citizens Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, attired in a smart designer pantsuit, replied, "If Bush can suspend the Constitution so can Congress. I speak for the Democratically controlled Congress, I'm the Speaker of the House. And I'm third in line for the Presidency. I could be President before Hillary!"
