Democrats Cite Health Care Cost Savings of Fewer Seniors, More Abortions

Washington, D.C.--Criticized for pushing a health care reform program costing over $1 trillion, Democrats argued their plan includes cost savings by providing for fewer seniors and more abortions.

These cost savings are acheived by cutting $500 billion from Medicare -- just as baby boomers turn 65 and increase Medicare enrollment by 30% -- and by allowing federally funded abortions.

"I'm not saying we should be dancing on their graves," said one Administration official. "But I have to say those cost-savings at the front and back end do nicely frame our health care plan."

President Obama's "science czar," John Holdren, hailed the cost-control measures. Holdren is the co-author of a 1977 book entitled "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment" that proposed "compulsory sterilization," possibly by spiking water reserves and staple foods with a sterilizing chemical, on the grounds that "To provide a high quality of life for all, there must be fewer people."

Holdren told Letterman, “Nothing irritates me more than the pitter-patter of little carbon footprints.”
