Toon like this?

I was thinking about the old Conservative cry, one that many still repeat, of Government Death Panels.

So I was wondering - Is their a toon of Cruz dressed up as a doctor, with uncle sam on the operating table, and Cruz is saying kill him?

I'd think that someone would have drawn that up during the shutdown that he pushed for, but I haven't been able to find one.

Speaking of entitlement...


Republicans are somewhat correct about the necessity of entitlement reform. I think I speak for a lot here when I say that we really, really, need to take a look at reforming congressional entitlements.

I know, this sounds crazy but...

With as bogged down as the healthcare exchange sites are, does anyone else think that some RW/TP groups have decided to ddos them?

We shutdown now

As chosen by the House, who decided to end voting for the night, we will now have out first government shutdown in over two decades.

This shutdown plays just like the last - Democratic President, Republican controlled House, and (In part) over health insurance. What was that saying about history? Oh yeah, Those who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

The ironic part about the shutdown is that even with it, the ACA will still go into effect. A shutdown wouldn't have affected it, but a shutdown would be a raised middle finger. Basically, the shutdown was out of spite.

In the most basic terms I can put it - The baby didn't like it's food, so it decided to throw up over everything.
