    The Reagan admin started the modern deficit spending.

    And that, folks, is how they make “Jelly Bellies” out there at the plant in Fairfield.

    Tune in next time when we talk about how they make beer next door at the Anheiser-Busch Brewery.

    Ah, yes. That’s our Senate (or House). Big squawk over very little. I don’t know why they they didn’t go ahead and show the chicken laying a egg. Congress lays enough of them.

    Kind of a ‘childish’ over reaction on your part.

    Morty, chickens often represent fear or a cowardly nature on someones part. Lay an egg implies they failed at an attempted tast.
    In this cartoon the jellybean is miniscule compared to the size of a normal egg, meaning the senate has done nothing for a long time (snoozing ZZZZZZ). Then when it suddenly wakes up and comes back to life it does next to nothing (lay a jellybean instead of a normal size egg). Lots of symbolism and “analogies” used here.

    -
    The Constitution puts spending bills as the responsibility of the House of Congress. Ronald Reagan had a Democratic controlled House for all 8 years of his term.
    Reagan had a Democratic controlled Senate for almost 3 of those years.
    -
    The Democrats proposed deals of Reagan agreeing to higher taxes, which he did, and CUTS IN SPENDING BY THE DEMS….an agreement that gave Americans higher taxes but NO CUTS IN SPENDING.

    How do you like them RECORDED FACTS, Jellybean?

    Radish, Reagan was elected in 1980 and took office Jan.1981.
    the “entitlement reform” is the subject of Kelley’s cartoon.
    Entitlements are the Big Three=
    Social Security, set up for automatic spending in 1935.
    Medicare, set up for automatic spending in 1965.
    Medicaid, also before Reagan was president.
    Want more “jellybeans”?
