Babs-I-Am

With apologies to Dr. Seuss, author of Green Eggs and Ham


What a sham! What a scam!
The bill is like green eggs and ham!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!

Will you use the spending axe?
Will you vote to raise our tax?

I will not use the spending axe!
I will vote yes to raise your tax!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!

Would you want a budget freeze?
Would you eat Obama’s peas?

I will not let the budget freeze!
I will consume Obama’s peas!
I will not use the spending axe!
I will vote yes to raise your tax!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!

Would you want us to default?
Will you make the spending halt?

No default!
No to halt!
No to freeze!
Yes to peas!
No to axe!
Yes to tax!
The bill is like green eggs and ham!
It is a sham! It is a scam!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!

Try to live within your means,
When the Senate next convenes.

We will not live within our means!
I’ll blow the House to smithereens!
The bill is like green eggs and ham!
It is a sham! It is a scam!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!
