ANNOUNCER & GRAPHIC:
This program contains subject matter and language that may be disturbing to some viewers.

Viewer discretion is advised.

(We see a living room set with couches and chairs arranged in a semi-circle. The set is slightly darkened. Five to six people begin to file into the living room and take their seats One of the persons is the “Facilitator” – the group leader, a “Wayne Dye/Dr. Phil” type. During this scene, we cut to each person as they speak.)

FACILITATOR:
I mean… How much longer can we do this? A day? A week? A year? I mean… If we don’t help him now…I fear that he’s never ganna get the help.

PERSON ONE:
He seemed like he had it under control…

PERSON THREE:
Well he always said that “this would be the last time” and everything will be fine…

PERSON FOUR:
Yeah… But there’s always a next time, another promise, another excuse.

PERSON TWO:
Once he started he couldn’t stop.

FACILITATOR:
And it’s hard to say these things to someone that you love. Right? First there’s the excuses, and then there’s the denial. I mean… healing begins with the truth.

You mislead us. You spent over $800 Billion Dollars on a “Stimulus Package,” that your Administration said would keep unemployment under 8 percent. It didn’t happen.

You’re always trying to talk your way out of it… deny you’re addicted.

PERSON THREE:
I mean, do you have any idea how bad this problem is? You’ve racked up nearly $2 trillion since you last raised the debt ceiling. And now you want to spend more?

PERSON FOUR:
There’s no end in sight…

I thought he was different…
