The American Medical Association has weighed in on Obama's new health care
package.  The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the
Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.  The Gastroenterologists
had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the
Administration had a lot of nerve.

Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a
misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted.
Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body," while the Pediatricians said, "Oh,
grow up!"

The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists
could see right through it.  Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the
whole thing, and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to
swallow.  The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole
new face on the matter."  The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but
the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.  Anesthesiologists thought
the whole idea was a gas, and those softy Cardiologists didn't have the
heart to say no.

In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the
assholes in Washington.
