Spin doctors, who have worked tirelessly to pass health care reform, have agreed to a multi-billion dollar cut in fees over the next ten years, in a last ditch effort attempt to make the proposed program solvent. "Every doctor, everywhere, needs to make sacrifices," noted a weary government official. "Spin doctors, despite their vital role in the passage and implementation of the plan, needed to step up to the plate themselves, and they have. These are American heroes. We hope that doctors in other disciplines will follow suit."
The President himself had high praise for the spin doctors' concession. "These brave men and women stand in the gap between our powerful ideas and the American public. Where would we be without them? Where would I be?"
"We're actually thrilled by this development," a spin doctor union official noted in a press conference Friday morning. "This agreement between administration officials and spin doctors not only guarantees savings for the President's program, but it also amounts to a ten-year extension on our contract with the government."
A fact verification study done by eRevolution analysts has uncovered that the touted savings does not actually equate to "major cuts" as headlines have suggested. Rather, spin doctors have agreed to a "reduction in the rate of growth of salaried pay, not to include reimbursable expenses, cash payouts or bonus options, and provided that no other factors interfere."
