The State of the Union

(to the tune of the Star Spangled Banner)

Oh, say can you see by the daily news casts?
Once so proudly we hailed, but now we’re sharply declining.
With the debt soaring high, no end to spending in sight
Washington’s out of control, they just tax and spend some more.

They’ve made a mess of healthcare, nobody knew what was in there
And gave proof on that night of arrogance beyond compare!
Oh, say does our government give a darn what we say?
We used to be the land of the free, but they’re slowly taking it away!
