unemployment ran out
which congressman's ass do I kick

homeless family living under a bridge - I found them yesterday
which congressman's ass do I kick

I saw a guy talking to a telephone pole yesterday
which congressman's ass do I kick

I know a guy who died because he had no health insurance and multiple health problems
I was going to marry him once
and now he's dead

this shit is so real
and they're playing games with our lives

whose ass do I kick?

Can you help us out?
