HA! I've learned a new word thanks to your poem, and what a poem! I especially loved "murky transparency" and "flim-flammers" >> yesiree, we all know those, don't we? Great satire, as well as commentary.

Thank you for teaching us a new term. I enjoyed your rhymed quatrains and your contemporary use of the "Supremes" too in this social commentary. Cheers- Joan

Nice picture that complements your poem very well. I did not even need to look the word up, could get it out of the contest. I liked your poem a lot.

Politician are nothing but a bunch of crooks that are looking out for no one but themselves. This country is being thrown away by them. They really don't care about what the people want. What they want is their own agendas fulfilled. This is a well written poetic voice that I enjoyed reading and writing this response for... John

    Thank you so much, John, for your supportive review. Obviously, I agree with you completely. It's so important for us to be proactive in our country's direction. Being writers and poets gives us a chance to be vocal about it. We are in some deep trouble. Pray that we can save it before it's too late. Again, thank you.

Living over here in England I don't have much idea about Obamacare or Grubering, except to note that he was on the payroll of Obama, then he lost favour. Basically, you are saying they pulled the wool over the eyes of the public to pass certain bills. All politicians are corrupt, no matter what party, no matter what country. Good use of rhyming and clear message. It is good to highlight these failures so people will perhaps listen. Enjoyable read. Faye

Perfect coinage of the new word. The liberals have been Grubering for years from their smug, holier-than-thou perches in academia and elected office. Smarter, no. But they do make compelling liars. Love the piece. And that's my 2 cents worth. - Wendy

    Hi Wendy. Appreciate so much your support. Problem is--libs just don't "get" it or want to.

    OH, they get it, they just can't stop patting us on the head long enough to consider another way of thinking.

    Yes, we're all stupid as far they're concerned.

Grubergate, gruberish, grubered, grubermania, moneygrubering and gruberpalooza are among a few of the new terms that have sprung into public use. These were inspired by one particular economist, Jonathon Gruber, who made an unfortunate comment about Obamcare, transparency and the mental capacity of Americans recently. Go figure... Someone casting disparaging remarks concerning Obamacare? Are they insane...have they gone completely mad (wink-wink;})?

We can only hope the Supreme Court will step in and do something about this ungodly mess we find ourselves in today. However, i seriously doubt it.

Great political satire here, BeasPeas, with a pertinent message that affects us all.

Good stuff!

    I hate what's on the news, Marilyn, but I always seem to watch it anyway. It's like pulling up on the freeway alongside a major accident. You don't really want to look at that white sheet lying on the ground as you drive past, but you do anyhow, if you know what I mean.

    You are always welcome, my friend. :}

    But we MUST know what's going on, as I know you know, too. Too many stupid people don't give a hoot and we are in enormous trouble in this country--that's why I stick my neck out to write my commentaries--even though I irk a lot of people. God bless and keep on writing, keep on writing.

    Well, I happen to like and agree with your poetic commentaries, BP. For what it's worth...:}

'Grubering'!
A catchy free verse with a strong political punch. The satirical humor is well played, accurate and telling, to say the least.
Thanks.
