WASHINGTON D.C. – (satireworld.com)
President Obama was taken to Walter Reed hospital today after complaining of a sore throat for the last couple of weeks. After several tests, doctors determined the President has acid reflux due to not following his wife’s rigid food guidelines – so he has more crap to deal with when he gets back home.
Because of the tests that were conducted on the President, he had to use his Obamacare policy to pay for the services. Since a scope AND a CT scan were ordered, members of the Obamacare death panel were consulted as to whether the benefit of the tests and treatment were worth the healthcare costs to the President. By a 6-5 vote, the President was allowed to receive treatment.
One anonymous panel member said it was a tough call to make. “Those tests raise healthcare costs for everybody. We thought today’s tests were reasonable, but if the President comes down with a case of hemorrhoids, we will probably have to put him down.”
Vice President Joe Biden was getting up to speed on major national security issues in case the President’s reflux takes a turn for the worse. Hospital personnel admitted the prospect of a President Biden made them all nauseous, and several employees developed acid reflux over just that possibility.
It would be quite ironic if President Obama became the first casualty of his own healthcare law. Meanwhile, millions of Americans have started sending truckloads of spicy Mexican and Indian food to the White House to show their sympathies for the President.
