Free steak for everyone!

January 1, 2013.   Today President Obama signed a bill that will entitle all Americans to free steak.   The OMB estimates the cost at $100 Billion over the next ten years.

June 1, 2013.  Today the OMB revised the estimate on the steaks to $230 Billion.   Previous estimates didn’t assume that people who previously couldn’t afford steak, would give it a try.  President Romney decided to tackle this projected deficit because he had already learned the lesson while Governor.

November 1, 2013,   Today the OMB revised the estimate on the steaks to $310 Billion.   Previous revisions did not predict that people would like the steak and increase their consumption of the steak.

January 1, 2014.   Today the OMB revised the estimate on the steaks to $370 Billion.  Damn vegetarians couldn’t stay on the wagon.

January 1, 2016.  Today the House passed a bill that rations steaks only to people that have grown or still have ALL of their own teeth.  One steak per person will be allowed each six months.  A queue will form for people who feel they must have steak and would like to appeal.

Ex-professional butchers, who had changed occupations when the government mandated a 90% reduction in their salaries, will volunteer to sit on the committee to review these appeals.

Today’s Headline: March 2, 2012.   White House increases estimate of the cost of ObamaCare by 30% or $111 Billion.   Earlier projections may not have accounted properly for the number of people who would shift from private market to the government subsidized private market plans.
