A Declaration of Independence from the Sustainable Growth Rate Formula
WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for physicians of this Nation and their patients to dissolve the Bands which have connected them to a flawed FORMULA, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind require that they should declare the causes which impel them to seek change.
United as ONE, we physicians, hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men and Women are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
That whenever any Formula of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to Alter or abolish it, and to INSTITUTE A NEW FORMULA, in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
TO PROVE THIS, let Facts be submitted to a candid World. CONGRESS has not yet PERMANENTLY REPEALED the FLAWED SUSTAINABLE GROWTH RATE FORMULA, an action recognized as necessary for the public good.
In every stage of these Oppressions, we have PETITIONED FOR REDRESS in the most humble Terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by ongoing instability due to short-term reprieves.
We, therefore, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to CONGRESS for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of this Nation, solemnly Publish and Declare, That physicians and their patients, of Right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT from the Flawed Sustainable Growth Rate Formula, and CONGRESS should act forthwith to expedite passage of a sensible replacement.
