“This piece of legislation must mark an end to the old way of doing business and the beginning of a new era of responsibility and accountability that the American people have every right to expect and demand.”
--President Obama, before signing an “imperfect” $410 billion spending bill that included more than 8,500 congressional earmarks costing nearly $8 billion.
“He could have really changed the special-interest, status-quo spending that we have here in Washington, but instead he really sang off the sheet of music that Congress gave him.”
--Steve Ellis, of Taxpayers for Common Sense

And now, ladies and gentlemen, direct from Capitol Hill for your after-dinner entertainment … won’t you give it up, please, for: Your Congressional Chorus!


We’re gonna slim down


Tomorrow


Bet your bottom dollar


That tomorrow,


We’ll be thin!


Just talkin’ about


Tomorrow


Peels away the billions


That we borrow…


So we win!


When we’re stuck with a prez


Who says


“Reform it!”


We just show him who’s boss,


His loss,


No way!


No!


We’re gonna slim down


Tomorrow


So just come and watch us change


Tomorrow,


Not today


Tomorrow!


Tomorrow!


We’ll diet tomorrow!


That’s always


The Congress way!


We’re gonna cut back


Tomorrow,


Toss those earmarks out the door


Tomorrow,


We’ll be strong!


We’re passin’ on pork


Tomorrow,


Say goodbye to needless treats


Tomorrow,


They were wrong!


When we open the bank


To thank


A donor,


When we fudge all the rules


We’re fools,


We’ll pay!


So…


We’re gonna be good


Tomorrow


You won’t even notice us


Tomorrow


Let us pray!


Tomorrow!


Tomorrow!


Salvation tomorrow!


That’s always


The Con…


Gress…


Way!
