Amazon! If Obamacare falters, it must be because the wings of the right root against it.

Amazon with whom I sit lonely deserted by pharmaceutical companies that will not stay bought! Wondering how do I get even with insurers who don't want to operate at a loss

Amazon! Amazon! The donkeys shop at Amazon, bray about Amazon, passed a 974-page bill that was supposed to work like Amazon! But you cannot know what is in the bill until you order it from Amazon

When it crumbles a disappointed Obama must propose a system that is the opposite of Amazon! Independent Payment Advisory boards morph into death panels!

EPOs! Covered California! Waiting lists! BadgerCare! Young invincibles!

Insurance death spirals! The sick sign up! The healthy abstain! Premium rates gurgle and spout! They are rising through the roof! On to single payer. There's only way out is into single payer!

Part III

Healthcare.gov! I'm with you in limbo

Where you're slower than molasses.

I'm with you in limbo

Where you don't seem so slow.

I'm with you in limbo

Where you murdered employer-paid health care

I'm with you in limbo

Waiting for the promised $2,500 in savings

I'm with you in limbo

Where men pay for free birth control for the spinsters of Utica

I'm with you in limbo

Where red-state senators calculate how ably they can run from your high costs and denied doctors

I'm with you in limbo

Where you rest responsibility for fixing this mess on the party that never supported it.

I'm with you in limbo

Where not a day goes by when you do not pay homage to Romneycare.

I'm with you in limbo

Where we hug and kiss the United States under talking points The United States that smokes and eats bacon and won't eat its vegetables

I am with you in limbo

Where 5 million Americans lost private plans so that 1 million could enroll in new exchanges

I'm with you in limbo

Where Organizing for Action lurches forward and angelic life of Julia meanders ahead O praise be to The Law of the Land not the Citizens United Supreme Court O soft money O soft belly O soft power where we dream of a system where speech is not free

I'm with you in limbo

In my dreams you promise more care for more people with more health problems and cheaper and it will be morning in America, which is, I must repeat, a Republican idea.
