Republicans Announce Tax Cuts Cure Cancer
In an exciting new political development Republicans announced today that tax cuts cure cancer. In a series of probing questions reporters sought to determine which cancers will be cured first and how long it will take. Republican responses were a little vague on the details, but it was emphasized that cutting the capital gains tax was the most effective, immediately eliminating prostate cancer among the rich, with the effect expected to trickle down to the middle class by 2013.
A lone reporter asked why President Bush’s extensive tax cuts had not cured cancer. He was denounced as overly partisan by some Republicans, but others patiently explained that our debt was much larger now, and Rand Paul produced a chart showing that certain cancer recovery rates had improved during the Bush years.
