This is the 2nd Edition of The Totally Unauthorized Obamacare Jokebook. Things have changed a lot in the 14 months since the 1st Edition of the joke book was published. ISIS. Ebola. Executive staff changes. Critical Supreme Court challenges. Democrat control of the Senate vanishing after the 2014 mid-term elections. And starting in 2015 millions more Americans are about to learn first hand the joys of Obamacare when employer mandates - delayed for years by executive order - finally start kicking into gear. The hits just keep on coming! The last straw was when the series of videos featuring Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber's now infamous remarks surfaced. Lots of material for some new jokes and some updates to earlier ones. Bringing major changes to the healthcare of millions of Americans is a massive undertaking and the debate surrounding Obamacare has continued unabated even as it has been implemented. Obamacare is just plain too big, too expensive and, well, too visible to not make a really great target for all kinds of jokes. This is a collection of humor about Obamacare. The law. The website. President Obama and his administration. Republicans and Democrats. Senators and Representatives. Insurance companies. Consultants. Nobody gets a pass. The print edition is 96 pages long with over 225 edgy and irreverent jokes, mock news stories, top ten lists, poems, groaners, songs and more. Some jokes are timely adaptations of old classic jokes but many are original and never been published before outside of the 1st and 2nd editions of "The Totally Unauthorized Obamacare Joke Book"; some of the items are actually true! Many items are laced with appearances by famous people and jokes about other current events and real places further liven up the material. Each chapter takes humorous aim at a different aspect of Obamacare: Chapter 1 - Introduction to the 'We've Been Grubered' Edition Chapter 2 - “Obamacare” has a little of everything – some administration, some politics, some website, etc. Chapter 3 - “Obamacare Website” focuses in on the disastrous development and launch of the website. Chapter 4 - “Administrators, Staffers and Bureaucrats” takes a topsy-turvy look at the Health and Human Services brain trust that should have made Obamacare work but didn’t. Chapter 5 - “Politics and Politicians” takes a jaded look at those denizens of the beltway and how they operate. Chapter 6 - “Media” takes a look at the Fourth Estate who should have been alerting us to this impending disaster but didn’t. Chapter 7 - “Obamapourri” takes a closer look at the man at the top and the other people who have been running things with him. There is even a bonus chapter, “Obamacare Late Night”, that features some of the best of the quips and one liners about Obamacare from news and the late night talk shows. And the index, “Who’s Who”, tells you the famous characters used in the various jokes.
