    The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math.

    To @human & braindead:
    I don’t get how your statements go along with this ’toon. Mind elaborating?

    I looked up the quote in panel one. It’s not paraphrased, it’s an actual quote by New York Congressman Sereno E. Payne. Amazing! It’s like saying “we don’t need to make any laws, the criminals will not obey them anyway”. Head hurts… Must stop reading GOP-stuff…

    Uh oh. It looks like Ted got a phone call. “Fall in line or we’re pulling your funding.” I may have to do a little research, but I don’t ever think I’ve had to label Ted Rall a butt-kisser.

    A tax cut on poor people? How do you have a tax cut on people that don’t pay taxes?

    Still telling the same old lie? Some poor people don’t pay federal income taxes since they have insufficient income to reach the threshhold. The working ones still pay payroll taxes, many of them pay property taxes, and everybody who doesn’t live in a cave pays sales taxes.

    More to the point, the GOP defined the health care mandate as a tax. The working poor are subject to the mandate. Therefore by your definition, they pay taxes, and they’d get a large cut under a sensible universal system.

    Panel four is absolutely correct, by the way. The Fourteenth Amendment says states may not deny equal protection to persons within their jurisdiction.

    @Gary Kleppe

    The ‘toon seems to refer only to federal tax. That’s all my comment referred to. By the way, you forgot taxes disguised as fees, excise taxes, and a myriad of other taxes that the government sneaks onto goods and services that are built into our everyday living.

    Just something panel five reminded me of.

    I am not a big fan of lotteries.

    ?? The first three panels demonstrate how right the Republicans have been all along. The last three panels are incomprehensible, which of course seems to be the intent. But the result is the message is not clear.

    When the umpire says it’s a strike, it’s a strike. If you protest too much, you’re out of the game.

    Disingenuous opposition. Positively Jon Stewart-ian.
    Well played, Mr. Rall.

    Also note: “What if Democrats dis the same thing?”
    The blame may be shared, but it ain’t equal.

    You mean all this considering that Dems and liberals go to any length to “win” their POV including the usual racism or other simplistic views to discount thinking that isn’t their own?

    When you have no valid argument you can always sling mud at the other guy.
