WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – Just hours after the historic vote on health care reform, the Tea Party movement has taken up a new battle cry, protesting what they believe is a “government takeover of Congress.”
Thousands of self-styled Teabaggers marched on the Capitol today to make the point that, in the words of one of their number, “Voting has no place in Congress.”
“Our forefathers designed Congress to be a place where people talked and talked and never got anything done,” said Teabagger Tracy Klugian. “This whole voting thing that happened on Sunday was tantamount to a government takeover of Congress.”
He said the Teabaggers “would continue protesting until Congress stopped passing laws and got back to the business of being Congress.”
The protest march began at the Capitol and then moved to the U.S. Postal Service, where the Teabaggers protested a government takeover of mail.
