    The only people getting free anything are the megarich, wall street thieves and corporate CEO’s. The rest of us are paying for their greed.

    Putting the Salvation Army in a political cartoon is called really, really poor judgement.

    @Clark Kent

    Clark stop and think. Where does the money come from for all these programs? It comes from taxes. Who is it that pays taxes? Those that have jobs and those that buy things and drive and so on.

    Everyone no matter how poor or rich pays sales tax, municipal, county and state taxes and fees, Everyone that works or has an “income” has income tax withheld as well as SS and medicare taxes. The bottom 50% of workers account for less than 3% of all income taxes collected. As it should be. The other half of the workers account for over 97% of the taxes collected.

    Employers contribute to an employees tax liability.

    So it is the rich that are supporting those on unemployment (an insurance paid for by the employer and federal funds to help out), the rich that support food stamps and so on.

    If you think a corporation is charging too much for their product/service don’t buy it. If you purchase the product/service then they did not steal it.

    @Bruce4671

    Are you saying that the top 50% count as rich? You say that it is the rich who support those on unemployment, etc. Is this a problem? Are you suggesting that the poor should be supporting those on unemployment? I guess I’m not sure what point you are trying to make.

    @HOWGOZIT….a caller to a radio program believes that same woman was at 2 different Ohio cities protesting against Romney and was one of many being paid $11 an hour to protest for the government workers union….no doubt being bussed for free. I remember the 2008 campaigns where Obama’s supporters were asking for big ticket items from him, and after he was in office many Democrat voters lined up at government sites hoping to get their “freebies”…..

    Trillions have gone to CEOs and that “1%” crew from Republican largesse, and Obama’s the one “giving it away”? Poppycock, Glenn.

    Wouldn’t free birth control pills reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies?

    Or is that a bad thing?

    Obama reminds us of the many governmental social assistance programs we can take advantage of as payers of (federal income, state income, city income, payroll, sales, alcohol, gasoline, cigarette…) taxes. A Good Cartoon.

    Charity will be all that’s left after the GOP is done with our government. I’ll take Obamaville.

    This is the best the right can come up with. “He’s giving things away…bad…bad.”
    10 points and dropping.

    @lonecat

    My point is this. We do not have a revenue problem we have a spending problem. This country collects over 2 trillion in taxes each year and yet can not make a budget that spends only that 2 trillion.

    According to the latest figures available to me, those people who earn over 350K a year (yeah that’s rich from my perspective of 35K a year) contribute about 37% of that amount in income tax. At 35K I am in the top 50% of wage earners and do pay income tax. I’m not looking for a person that make less than I – though I manage to live well but it’s just me and the wife – and has kids to start paying into the system. But those that collect from the system must understand that the ones they want to decimate by taking the majority of their earnings are the ones already paying them.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if editorial cartoonists had a bit of objectivity instead of slavishly fellating the candidate of their party of blind allegiance?

    Which is not to say the opposing cartoons are any better. But presenting Mitt Romney as the selfless Salvation of the poor is cognitive dissonance that borders on mental illness. It would have worked much better if he’d cropped that out and left only the Obama parts. At least it’d be a pretense of objectivity, rather than this propagandic trash.
