Accidentally accurate


Cartoonist Lisa Benson takes aim at the Democrats' opposition to the the Republican budget plan proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan. You know: the notion that we will save Medicare (and the nation!) by destroying it. Of course, if you're really gullible—or perhaps really dim—you might believe that converting Medicare to a voucher plan is a good idea. And good luck chasing after private insurance with those shrinking vouchers.

The only thing really missing from Benson's cartoon is an appropriate label: Step One! Tossing the GOP budget proposal over the cliff is merely a good start.

Step One!

Step Two: Give the elephant a voucher and see how he likes it.

The Republicans know they've made too many enemies of the little people, and they don't have a prayer to win the elections in 2012, so they have nothing more to lose and are on the war path blowing up everything and everyone in sight!

Lower taxes, fewer regulations, Drill, Baby, Drill.

GOP Rx in bad times:
Lower taxes, fewer regulations, Drill, Babay, Drill.

Who buys their crap anymore?

I think every Republican member of the House needs a spanking. But, 2,000 dollars bet saying they would enjoy it and would pay me as much. Stop foreign aid, stop the wars, make the rich pay their fair share, end corporate tax breaks, farm breaks, I'm sick of making Medicare the fall guy. Screw you GOP.

Step Three: Suggest that the elephant try praying for relief ;-)))
