Iowahawk turns his inimitable talents to a new version of the classic holiday movie updating it a bit.

I guess what they say is right – one man can make a difference. Clarence, but what about the heath care bill? The health care bill, Clarence!
You weren’t there to vote for cloture, George. It died in committee. America never got its healthcare bill, and Bedford Falls never got that Federal Snow Museum.
Take me to Doc Bradford’s medical clinic Clarence! I wanna see what happened!
But George, I don’t think you’ll want to see it, it’s just…
Take me there Clarence! Take me, darn it! I wanna see it, see?
Sigh. Alright, as you wish.
Inside Doc Bradford’s clinic
That was quite a nasty spill you took on the ice, Mrs. Foster. I’m scheduling you for an artificial hip replacement Tuesday. In the meantime, stay off your feet and fill this prescription for pain relievers.
Just like that? What about getting approval from the hip procedure rationing board?
There is no rationing board, George. It’s completely up to Doc and Mrs. Foster.
Oh, bother. How much is this going to cost me?
Medicare will pick up most of it, but looks like you’ll have a $200 deductible.
Well I guess I always can skip my AARP dues.
