Obama Has No Miracles Up His Designer Sleeves

Obamcare premiums will skyrocket next year.
I am a sparkler in the sky.
I am giving off sparks like the Fourth of July.
 
There is no freedom when ideologues
Cherry bomb health care,
Blow up our budgets and tell us
It’s good for us.
Obama knows it all.
Just ask him.
It’s right there on his teleprompter.
 
So we learn that our rates are going up,
Our deductibles are raising,
Our doctors are hiding in other counties
And our health care plans are clueless.
 
How does Obama take away cancer hospitals
From the tumorous
And announce that he is doing us a favor?
 
Obama has waged a war on his own people
While telling us that he is our savior.   
The young aren’t buying it.
The prices go up.
Yet the young buy into Obama like a leper
Buying into Jesus.
Only Obama has no powers of redemption,
No miracles up his designer sleeves.
 
Obama’s lies hurt us.
He has priced us out of the market.
We can no longer afford the anesthetic for our despair?
