image for Bob The Builder Appears On Fox News To Denounce Obamacare

Bob The Builder, one of the nation's most prominent and animated businessmen, appeared on the Fox News program "Fox and Friends" today to support the repeal of Obamacare. It was a stunning turnaround, following his years of work for PBS television, which is widely known as a haven for liberals.

Bob explained, "Look, I made some mistakes before the construction bubble burst. I probably never should have put Roley, Muck, Lofty, and everyone else on the payroll as employees. My company now has well over 50 employees, although I'm considering a challenge to the IRS ruling that anthropomorphic construction machines are employees. I simply won't be able to provide health insurance or mechanical maintenance plans for them."

The show's hosts were sympathetic, suggesting that Bob maybe should have hired illegally imported machines and just paid them cash off the books as sub-contractors.

The Builder said, "I watch your network all the time, so I know that Obama is a socialist and that we need to take back America. It's my duty as a public figure to help you guys spread the word."

As a parting comment, Bob asked the hosts "Can we repeal it?". They responded, "Yes, we can!"
