The Tale of a Sick Uncle Sam

It was in 2008 – as the residency for Dr. George W. Bush was coming to an end – that Uncle Sam collapsed on the floor of the housing market.  Things were not looking good for the old icon.  He was bleeding jobs and all the vital signs were pointing downward.  There was a chance Sam could slip into a coma.  His family – we the people – were very worried.  They almost fell into depression.

Panicked by his condition, and blaming Dr. Bush for not preventing the collapse, Sam’s family hired a new team headed up by Dr. Barack Obama.  To offset the bleeding, Dr. Obama pumped in a big transfusion of money and prescribed a bunch of economic medications that would regulate Sam’s symptoms but not address the underlying cause of his collapse.

Having earned his medical degree from the University of Socialized Medicine, Dr. Obama believed that constant transfusions of money was the only option – even if the family could not afford it.  But no matter.  Dr. Obama said they should just go out and borrow the money.

So, month after month and year after year, Sam lay in Intensive Care showing very small signs of improvement, but not enough to see him on his feet again anytime soon.  In fact, Dr. Obama and his team of specialists all agreed that everything possible was being down, but it would be a looooong time before Sam would recover fully – if ever.  We would just have to accept our weaker and frailer Uncle Sam.

Then along came Dr. Trump, who had gotten his degree from the School of Common-Sense Medicine.  He diagnosed Sam as strong as a bull but in need of a different treatment – one that had been proven effective in the past.  Sam did not need that highly expensive stuff that Dr. Obama has been prescribing – at more than a trillion dollars  per year, to be precise.  Dr. Trump promised to provide much less costly treatment that would be far more effective. 

In response, Dr. Obama and his team called Dr. Trump a quack.  If he is allowed to treat poor ole Sam, they said, the old geezer will just get worse.  In fact, just hiring Dr. Trump would probably send Sam into a downward tumble and eventual cardiac arrest. 

But seeing Sam just laying there, weak and helpless, for so long was enough to try something different.  Maybe it was a risk, but what the hell?  Sam’s family turned his care over to Dr. Trump.  Just the thought of a new doctor and the possibility of new treatment made Sam feel better.  His stock perked up almost immediately. 

Just having the family hire Dr. Trump put Dr. Obama’s team into shock, however.  Many were found huddling together in safe space trauma centers across the nation.  Others were so angry at the family that hired Dr. Trump that they went on a rampage – calling the family a basket full of nasty names.   

Dr. Trump said that Dr. Obama was doing too many things to just regulate Sam’s problem and not enough to cure him — and THAT was the problems.  According to Dr. Trump, Sam needed to be taken off all that  stuff Dr. Obama had prescribed to regulate Sam’s condition so that his own body could heal itself.

Rather than spending all that money on Sam, Dr. Trump suggested that the money saved be given to his family so that we could use it to buy things Sam needed – and the more they bought, the better Sam felt.  Soon, Sam was out of bed, out of the hospital feeling better, stronger and healthier than ever.

Instead of admitting he and his staff were wrong, Dr. Obama started saying that Sam still had problems.  And when he could no long point to any problems because all of Sam’s vital signs were amazingly good for a guy of his age, Dr .Obama said that it was he and his people who had saved Sam’s life and that it was his treatment that put Sam on the road to swift recovery.  And with that, Dr. Obama handed the family an $18 trillion bill not covered by insurance.

Uncle Sam was back to his old self – taking care of his family — and everybody lived happily ever after.  Okay, not everybody.
