Who killed real health care reform,
Why an' what's the reason for?

"Not I," says the greedy insurance CEO,
"Don't point your finger at me.
I could've stopped it before it was to late
An' maybe kept it from this fate,
But the Wall Street crowd would've booed, I'm sure,
At not gettin' their money's worth.
It's too bad quality care had to go,
But there was a pressure on me to keep my loss ratios low,
It wasn't me that made it fall.
No, you can't blame me at all."

"Not us," says the pharmaceutical crowd,
Whose screams filled the Capital rotunda aloud.
"It's too bad it died alright
But we just like to see our profits sky high.
We didn't mean for it to meet this death,
We just meant to hedge our R&D bets,
There ain't nothing wrong in that.
It wasn't us that made it fall.
No, you can't blame us at all."

Why an' what's the reason for?

"Not me," says Baucus, that ring leader of the Senate health care caucus
Puffing on a big insurance industry cigar.
"It's hard to say, it's hard to tell,
I always thought that healthcare industry was just swell.
It's too bad for everyman's wife an' kids it's dead,
But if it was sick, the lobbyists should've said.
It wasn't me that made it fall.
No, you can't blame me at all."

Who killed real health care reform,
Why an' what's the reason for?

"Not me," says the gambling fund manager,
With his Annual Reports still in his hand.
"It wasn't me that knocked it down,
My hands never touched it none.
I didn't commit no ugly sin,
Anyway, I put money on the insurance industry to win, win, win.
It wasn't me that made it fall.
No, you can't blame me at all."

Who killed real health care reform,
Why an' what's the reason for?

"Not me," says the feckless medical news writer,
Pounding lame print on his medical news typewriter,
Sayin', "The health care industry ain't to blame,
There's just as much danger in any Wall Street con game."
Sayin', "rescission, purging and reneging is here to stay,
It's just the profitable insurance industry way.
It wasn't me that made it fall.
No, you can't blame me at all."

Who killed health care reform,
Why an' what's the reason for?

"Not me," says the AMA whose fists
Laid it low in a cloud of faux socialist mist,
Who said reform came here from Cuba's back door
Where private profits ain't allowed no more.
"We hit it, yes, it's true,
But that's what the Docs paid us to do.
Don't say 'murder,' don't say 'kill.'
It was free market destiny, it was God's will."

WB7: The market fundamentalist crap that drove Wall Street into the bailout cesspool apparently works in the health care industry.
