Seniors and Prisoners and Unemployed Required To Generate Energy

A new energy proposal initiated by Republicans and included in the latest "Ryan" Budget just approved in the House  --  would require all senior citizens on medicare  - all people on medicaide or on welfare or unemployment insurance - and all federal prisoners - to generate electricity by pedaling on stationery bikes or walking on tread mills which would be installed by Haliburton.

"The energy produced will help to replace our dependence on foreign oil -- it will be environmental friendly -- it will be cost efficient (no labor costs) and it will improve the health of folks who are adding heavily to our rising medical costs and who contribute very little to Society in general." said Newt Gingrich.

The next phase of this plan would be the installation of "electricity sensitive carpeting" in nursing homes where the elderly could Shuffle along and generate static elecricity (Zap) in cases where excercize bikes or treadmills are not practical or for use by people not strong enough to bycycle or walk fast enough.

President Obama called the plan "shocking".
