"It Simply Doesn't Work"

by

In an effort to reduce wasteful spending and non-essential services,
the U.S. government will eliminate the heavily-subsidized,
long-ineffectual Senate, thus saving us all over $300 billion a year,
the Onion reports. Not only have Senators misspent
billions over the years, but they have derailed a wide range of useful
programs, from social
welfare to job creation to environmental protection.

"Were
the
government to open a day-care center, a homeless shelter, or even an
affordable restaurant in that building, it would make more of a
difference in the lives of everyday Americans than what's there now."
