PRESIDENT: What's this?
CONGRESS: It's um ... it's just this joint resolution we just passed that we need you to sign.
PRESIDENT: Joint resolution? Are you sure it isn't the 63rd time you've tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act?
CONGRESS: Oh no, sir! Really, it's a joint resolution. Nothing to do with Obamacare. Believe me, we learned our lesson the other 62 times. We'd never try to repeal the Affordable Care Act again! It would just be a huge waste of time and a waste of taxpayer money, because you would simply veto it. You've made that clear. That would be just plain stupid of us!
PRESIDENT: Yes it would! Now, what's this joint resolution about?
CONGRESS: It's um ... it's about puppies!
CONGRESS: Yeah! Puppies!
PRESIDENT: I love puppies!
CONGRESS: Everyone loves puppies!
PRESIDENT: Yes they do! What about puppies?
CONGRESS: It's um ... just a joint resolution that says that we, the United States of America, is in favor of puppies. That's all. Nothing about health care. Just cute little puppy stuff.
PRESIDENT: Well, I'd be thrilled to sign that! Just let me have a look --
CONGRESS: No! Don't read it! I mean ... no need to read it at all. Believe us, it's just the puppy thing, that's all. Don't you trust us?
PRESIDENT: Well, OK, I guess. If you guys say it's about puppies, it must be about puppies. I'll just go ahead and sign it.
CONGRESS: Yes, just go ahead and sign it!
PRESIDENT: (Signs it.)
CONGRESS: Ha-ha! Fooled you! You just repealed the Affordable Care Act!
PRESIDENT: You guys! You sure got me good that time! That puppy thing -- that was real tricky! Who's idea was that?
CONGRESS: The overall plan was Mitch's idea, but Paul came up with the puppy thing.
PRESIDENT: Well, it sure worked! Pulled the wool right over my eyes. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go down to the Situation Room and order Predator Drone attacks on all of your homes and families.
CONGRESS: OK, Mr. President! See ya!
