    Better than the Republican Darwin policies of rich eating the poor.

    Did Ted Cruz just help to point out that if ACA is a Tax then the HOR controls the funding…

    “…. in an attempt to please too many parties it has a lot of problems…”

    A lot of problems is a bit of an understatement. The ACA has so very many good precepts that would have benefited the U.S. populace and this is what I’ve seen the proponents of the ACA espouse in these forums. It is unfortunate that Congress wrote such a mess in their attempt to implement those good ideas.

    The income gap between the richest 1% of Americans and the other 99% widened to a record margin in 2012, according to an analysis of tax filings.

    The top 1% of US earners collected 19.3% of household income, breaking a record previously set in 1927.

    Income inequality in the US has been growing for almost three decades.

    Overall, the pre-tax incomes of the top 1% of households rose 19.6% compared to a 1% increase for the rest of Americans.

    This is a rarity for Payne, illustrating the bizarre behavior of a Tea Party character. The only reason I can see for the Cruz antics is to absorb the blame on behalf of the Republicans as a whole – he doesn’t care, and is in the senate until 2018.

    If the government stops pay to the troops in mid October, I would like to know how young men with families are going to feed themselves. These men have done the work.

    That even the most conservative (until TEAnuts fell from the trees) cartoonists and politicians recognize that the guy is an idiot and nuts, should say something. Yep, that his supporters are also nuts.

    Over 70% of Americans, in every poll taken, want to see a form of universal health care that is affordable. Some 90% of those opposed to the current law only want one basic change, they want “single payer”!

    Cruz is running for president as the TSE Party candidate (even though he’s not eligible).

    Actually he’s praising Cruz but you have to think about it, so the libs will never get it
    .
    Enlighten us, then. The metaphor in this ‘toon is that he’s trying to stop the tide with his mighty whistle. I suppose universal health care is evil, then?

    @Zuhlamon

    I notice that the sign says “Obamacare Beach”. Is this an allusion to “Omaha Beach”? And if so, what would that mean? Who would have been interesting in holding off the landing at Omaha Beach?

    _ Is this an allusion to “Omaha Beach”?_

    That explains the ‘Sieg Heil!’ salute.

    I think Payne meant to suggest that Cruz is not putting up a real defense & the rest of the GOP army is MIA. I guess he didn’t think through the idea that he put Cruz in the position of the Nazi troops, let alone the gesture.

    And still no comments from any of the birthers.

    Would it be my understanding of your position is that BHO is a US citizen for any other reason than his mother was a US citizen?

    There is a lot wrong with the BC that was presented to the World, so I will always question where he was born… just not that he was and still is a US Citizen. His mother makes him one.

    At this point, History will slowly reveal much more interesting facts about BHO’s birth and the people who knew what, when, and where….

    YOU made the interpretation about Nazis..It’s a stretch that Obamacare and Omaha are related. And I don’t see a “salute.” I see a “stop.”

    Lonecat caught the Omaha beach reference, which I assume was Payne’s intent. I think he meant to say that Cruz is ‘blowing the whistle’ to stop the ACA, but that’s far from what is required. I think he also meant to point out that Cruz seems to be the lone defender on the beach. Otherwise, this toon would seem to be mocking Cruz for resisting the inevitable, which I don’t think is Payne’s point.

    I think Payne opened himself to the obvious (and, hilarious, IMO) comparisons to the German defenders at Omaha Beach.
