[Washington DC] New Speaker of the House Paul Ryan insisted today that he will ensure there will be no lessening of the efforts to undo Obama’s signature healthcare legislation.
“We will continue our efforts to repeal Obamacare no matter what. No event or circumstance will ever dissuade us from that, and I mean nothing.”
When asked to give an example to show just how serious he was, Ryan insisted not even astronomical events so immense they defy the imagination would derail him.
“I read somewhere that the Sun is fated to become a Red Giant someday, ballooning to one hundred times its current diameter and incinerating the Earth. That will obviously have consequences, but forgoing our efforts to rescind Obamacare will not be one of them.”
The GOP-controlled House has voted to repeal Obamacare in its entirely many times already, though, without the votes in the Senate, their efforts are essentially meaningless.
“I will take up no other business until I have devised a means to continue our symbolic votes against this despicable legislation for at least the next 7 billion years.”
