How Obamacare works

Now that President Obama has been reelected, Obamacare is pretty much a fixture. But a lot of people don't know how it works, or, well, how it's supposed to to work assuming it does at all.

Never fear! I have read the entire law and figured out how it works. It's on page 1689, and I'll outline it here in straight street talk for the people.

1. Take one of those big-assed vanilla envelopes and write this address on the front of it:

Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

2. Put your medical bills inside the big vanilla envelope. (Try to fit as many as you can inside to save postage and vanilla trees.)

3. Take the envelope down to the Post Office and hand to clerk and say "Yo, how much postage go on this?" Then hand them the money or your SNAP card.

That's it! See, it's easy. That's why it's called Obamacare -- Obama takes care of it. I guess originally it was going to be Joe Biden who took care of it, but they were afraid he'd screw it up.

Isn't it all wonderful? The people who came up with this idea are geniuses. So simple. As easy as falling off a cliff. Definitely worth the crushing taxes and layoffs.
