image for President Obama Slashes Cost of National Health Care Plan
Sane Day Surgeons in practice...

In a stunning move to quell Republican claims of cost overruns, President Obama has today announced his plan to introduce "Sane Day Surgery". It is a novel idea to bring together all those in mental hospitals who either imagine themselves to be doctors or former doctors who went crazy trying to figure out Medicare.

The idea is to monitor these people daily, and when they appear to be lucid for a while, whisk them off to do surgery on those who are in need of such.

Since the Sane Day Doctors won't remember the operations, they will not expect to be paid either. This will save millions in frivolous law suits also, since they are already considered insane and not responsible for their actions.

This plan will be tried on people who are not too bright already, and if it works even a little bit it will become the new Gold Standard for this administration.

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