Obama says health care costs, sun to rise

At a political rally today, President Barack Obama touted his new health care reform proposal to a sun-baked crowd in New Jersey. Stunning the crowd, he said, ”Mark it down, people, healthcare costs are going to go up.”

Obama added, “And if we wait long enough, the sun is going to come up in the morning too.”

Harmon Morris of Boonton, NJ, clearly overcome by the President’s predictions, said, “The President really convinced me. “

A few anti-health reform activists carried protest signs that read “God did not make little green apples.” Susan Sharp from Dover, Delaware said, “The Administration wants us to believe costs will go up and a lot of other stuff. But we don’t believe his rhetoric.”

Undeterred, the President stayed on message saying, “As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti, it will snow in Minneapolis in the winter time.”

Elsewhere, wrapping up her confirmation hearing, Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, revealed that she once fronted a band known as the Wise Latinas, but assured Senators that it would not affect her judgment on the High Court.

    Well, I for one am waiting for health care. As a woman my age I’m in very good health except for having to deal with depression – that’s enough to kick me into a high paying bracket or completely out of health care. Seems a shame – I’m probably a better risk by all others measures.

    He was right. The sun rose here this morning. How about elsewhere?
