    The President is not saying that. This is a straw man. Except the Republican is spot on. THEY are saying exactly that. The same lie that dragged the country into hell during the Bush years.

    “Arbeit Macht Frei”…

    This is really in poor taste. There’s no humor in it. Comics are meant to enlighten in some way. Not denigrate crassly. Boo to the editor who allowed this.

    Rall’s bitterness has left him with little insight into current affairs and less humor.

    I take it Rall hates the president more so than usual.

    Right, the President isn’t saying that. But he isn’t giving working people (or people who would like to be working) the help they need, either. Actions (or lack thereof) speak louder than words.

    Keep looking up. Something is bound to trickle down on you

    There is a way to encourage the rich to invest in jobs while simultaneously giving them tax breaks.

    The government doesn’t produce wealth, but it does produce debt and inflation. I’m not saying the government doesn’t have legitimate functions.

    I don’t think the average person realizes how much “money” he could make if the government didn’t have its hand in every pocket they can find. Which is better, making 40 K a year and having all these bureacracies or making 60-70 K a year but being responsible to take care of your own needs?

    HB: If you had to pay for your own roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, and health care, not to mention a military to protect you from those brown-skinned boogeymen, it would cost you much, much more than 30K a year.

    Countries that have real nationalized health care (which ours doesn’t, even after Obama) spend a lot less than we do and get better outcomes.

    TW: the President could at least be out there, leading. Using the “bully pulpit.” And there’s ways for the President to pressure members of Congress. Certainly those ways get used every time there’s opposition to military spending.

    If you join the President’s war effort, you can kill yourself.

    I agree. This cartoon is in poor taste. It’s far too early for Obama to have that attitude. He has another election ahead of him. For now, he needs those unemployed votes. He’ll give them hope that he can change the rich into poor which will help the unemployed, because when rich people become poor, they create more jobs. If he gets reelected, then he’ll tell us all to eat ObamaCare and die.

    Both panels show the Republican view point.

    @H-buck- “Which is better, making 40 K a year and having all these bureacracies or making 60-70 K a year but being responsible to take care of your own needs?”

    There’s no way we could cut taxes enough for someone to go from 40k take home pay to 60 or 70k take home. We’ve seen over the last 30 years that tax cuts and income increases are going into the pockets of the wealthy. The entire Tea Party mantra about taxes & government regulation is a decoy to keep us from realizing that the working people are being screwed.

    Tax cuts & deregulation don’t create many good jobs in the U.S., they only make Wall Street richer.

    Trickle-down is the effluent of the affluent.
