Dr. Suess Goes to Washington

6 September 2011

Today, members of Congress returned to Washington DC for a new legislative session. It is only fitting that we welcome them back to work with a poem written especially for freshman members of the House, and in a style that reflects their very best oratory.

.

.

We do not like Obama’s plan.

We will not pass it, small or grand!

We do not want to share his vision.

We will not pass a jobs provision.

.

We will not mend the nation’s rails,

Not even if the country fails.

We will not vote for jobs today.

Keep full employment far away!

.

.

Roads and bridges won’t get fixed.

No brickwork laid, no concrete mixed.

To us, the thing that seems most vital,

Is keeping jobless people idle.

.

We will not pass it in the dark.

We will not pass it on a lark.

We do not like a jobs bill, ma’am.

We will not pass it. No, by damn!
