A Victory for the American People – who don’t pay for things, a massive defeat for the people who do.

A Victory for the American People – who continue to take out more than they put in.

A Victory for the American People  – who are dumb enough to believe that the process still works.

A Victory for the American People – who don’t contribute to America’s success.

A Victory for the American People – and a massive defeat for the American family which used to be the first unit of government.

A Victory for the American People – and the destruction of the health care system that used to be the envy of the world.

A Victory for the American People – a bummer for the 85% of you who like your current insurance.

A Victory for the American People – who could not bare to see me be a lame duck in the first 18 months of my disastrous first and only term.

A Victory for the American People – who still believe Social Security and Medicare are well run programs.

A Victory for the American People – who will come out in force in November and reclaim the house and the Senate

A Victory for the American People – (fill in the blank for me Red Staters …..)
