DC Asylum presents “The Rose Garden Tears”

News Anchor:  We interrupt today’s broadcast to take you to the White House Rose Garden

President:  Today, we face a crisis of unprecedented proportion – today there are 45 million Americans who are without home ownership and are forced to live as rentors.

President:  Let me introduce you to Sarah Lee Whiney, a mother of two, who has to live in a 1,000 square foot, 2 room apartment.  Not only is there only one bathroom which needs to be shared, her children lack any fundamental privacy.

(Camera shot of Sarah, wiping copious amounts of tears from her face)

President:  My friend Sarah represents the true picture of America, where families are forced to spend upwards of 25% of their pay check for rent.  And live one rent increase away from being evicted.

President:  Our Founding Fathers set out to create a society in which every person would be guaranteed the pursuit of hapiness.   But today, we have major corporations such as ACME Rentals, who are more interested in protecting their profits and issuing outlandish bonuses.

(Camera cut shows Nancy bobbing her head uncontrollably)

President:  Furthermore, the American worker, the engine which drives the success of the business throughout America, is struggling at the end of the day, with no housing allowance coverage from their employer.

President:  Now, let me be clear, my administration will not sit idely while so many in America are being deprived of this fundamental Constitutional right

(Change the channel & look to see what the Dow Jones is doing)

Yes, there are a lot of things every America needs in order to survive and thrive – Health care, housing, food, transportation, higher education… and with each of these, no only are these not being covered by the employer, but someone in America is actually making a profit.

What an oppressive and uncaring society we live in.
