GOD STRIKES DOWN TEXAS RIGHT-WING IMBECILE JOE BARTON. LUCKILY HE ISN'T DEPENDENT ON THE MEDICARE PROGRAM HE IS TRYING TO GUT
Joe Barton is a vicious right-wing partisan who, unfortunately for America, is the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. God looked at his war against the middle and working class and decided to strike him down yesterday and his carcass was hauled out of Congress on a stretcher. Having been in Congress for over 20 years, Barton's philosophy of selfishness and every man for himself social Darwinism has done untold damage to those who the Son of God claimed would inherit the earth.
Although Barton has been on a crusade to destroy Medicare, his own unlimited health care is not impacted the way ordinary American taxpayers' health care is. Before God gave him a heart attack, Barton, who will probably survive in some vegetable-like state, was busy with his 2 current pet crusades: making sure there would not be funds for the elderly to pay emergency heating bills this winter and cutting Medicare programs for the poor. With God having made sure Barton is incapacitated, the bills will have to be postponed. The very last thing Barton had done before God caught up with him, was to try to insert a sneaky provision in a budget bill that would allow oil drilling in God's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
God has encouraged a military hero, David Harris to run against Barton in the 2006 congressional election. Barton, one of Tom DeLay's chief lieutenants, has been involved in nearly every congressional financial scandal of the last 5 years. No wonder God hates him and struck him down!
