And Jesus Said Unto Paul of Ryan...

 
A woman who had been bleeding for 12 years came up behind Jesus and touched his clothes in hope of a cure. Jesus turned to her and said: "Fear not. Because of your faith, you are now healed."
 
Then spoke Pious Paul of Ryan: "But teacher, is that wise? When you cure her, she learns dependency. Then the poor won't take care of themselves, knowing that you'll always bail them out! You must teach them personal responsibility!"
 
They were interrupted by 10 lepers who stood at a distance and shouted, "Jesus have pity on us."
 
"No!" shouted Pious Paul. "Jesus! You don't have time. We have a cocktail party fund-raiser in the temple. And don't worry about them - they've already got health care access."
 
Jesus turned to Pious Paul, puzzled.
 
'Why, they can pray for a cure," Pious Paul explained. "I call that universal health care access."
 
Jesus turned to the 10 lepers. "Rise and go," he told them. "Your faith has made you well." Then he turned back to Pious Paul, saying, "Let me tell you the story of the good Samaritan. #SPMGMedia
