"Weeks after leaving office, Obama discovers a leak under his sink so he calls a plumber to fix it..."
The Conservative Tribune website has some fun with the concept of an "Affordable Plumbing Act":
"Troy arrives and takes his tools into the house. He is led to the guest bathroom that contains the leaky pipe under the sink. Troy assesses the problem and tells Obama that it’s an easy repair that will take less than 10 minutes. Obama asks Troy how much it will cost. Troy checks his rate chart and says, '$9,500.'
'What?! $9,500?!' Obama asks, stunned, 'But you said it’s an easy repair. Michelle will whip me if I pay a plumber that much!'
Troy says, 'Yes, but what I do is charge those who make more than $250,000 per year a much higher amount so I can fix the plumbing of poorer people for free. This has always been my philosophy. As a matter of fact, I lobbied the Democrat Congress, who passed this philosophy into law. Now all plumbers must do business this way. It’s known as the ‘Affordable Plumbing Act of 2014′. I’m surprised you haven’t heard of it.'"
