In Happier Days

"O my sweet God," Dick Cheney gasped at a hastily called news conference at an undisclosed location," Did I ever screw up!" My health insurance caps out at 2 million and I just passed it...Even I can't pay pay the medical bills I run up. Why in hell isn't that bastard Obama hurrying this health care thing along? I need help and I need it now."

His agitation palapable, Cheney finally collapsed in a heap. Concerned staffers called 911 but the ambulance refused to transport as his health plan was now void. Hastily arranging a ride in the back of a pick-up truck, reporters took the struggling man, now blue from lack of oxygen, to the nearest emergency room. Refused admittance due to over-crowding, the reporters finally found a clinic which refused to treat because of his lack of insurance coverage.

Finally admitted by a third emergency room, Cheney was stabilized after a two day wait in a crowded and filthy corridor and then thrown out onto the street with the other un-insured. While reviewing the bill for his treatment, he finally succumbed.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
