Well, here I am, a nice new tax bill that the committee’s worked so hard on! I oughta make a hit!
So this is the house! — Hey! Who threw that? Help! Murder! — They’re pulling me to pieces!
Maybe these Senators’ll treat me better! — No, this is just as bad! — They’re jumping all over me!
I’ll try the Secretary of the Treasury! — What? Even HE treats me rough, and I’m giving him a billion dollars!
Now, to pass the President’s inspection! Oh, gee! He’s frowning, but, thanks be! — He’s signing!
Gosh! Here is is, all over again! Now I’ve got 100,000,000 people kicking me around!
