Goodwyn and the other Trump Disciples have NO concept of investment, if it is done for the benefit of the American people.
it would be nice if the rich had any empathy just remember that the American eagle needs a right wing as well as a left one to fly
I like to do that to Al maybe it knock some sense back into him ( I doubt it though)
Hah! That’s about right.
An illustration of the GOP’s belief that when Democrats are in power, spending money is wrong. They don’t give us any reasons, because it is self evident and obvious to everyone they cater to.
PS: the economy isn’t ticking along like we all wish, but it’s not hospitalized either.
GDP growing at healthy rates, despite major supply chain problems particularly for tech-basked industries. Unemployment at historically low levels. Not a perfect economy, but one at risk of overheating, then stalling. But certainly not one on life support, which is what Goodwyn drew here. Willful stupidity or casual dishonesty?
But all you Trump-loving MAGATs were fine with debt funded tax cuts for the super wealthy? $7.8 trillion in debt accumulated during the Trump administration was cool, too.
But, when they want to spend money that helps the other 99%, you people get pissed? Screw conservatives. Democrats need to do EVERYTHING in their power to get that legislation passed.
As opposed to the Republiqanons, who would just let it die (as long as they got theirs).
After all, the money the government has came from the taxpayers anyway. The point of government is to do things for the good of the people.
in the Alternate universe, giveaways and tax cuts to bilionaires and corporations to the tune of $8T is good spending, and investing in our country to address decades of neglect and the need to catch up top the rest of the world is wasteful. Lewis Carroll would be proud.
The RepubliTrump tax cuts did not pay for,themselves. Fundamental improvements in infrastructure will.
Taxes are the cost of Government. Al, if you want to live in a place without Government move to Iraq. I have been there, it is a right wing fantasy land. Bring your gun you will need it.
America desperately needs this bill to fix ancient grids, crumbling bridges and roads, highways! aid it were left to the GOP, they would definitely take us back a century and living in the 1900’s! They want all their bank accounts to increase while the citizens struggle and starve! Why can’t their sheep see this? ignorance is bliss!
Maybe one day Al and the other Alt-Reich cartoonists will actually learn what they’re talking about before drawing their strips but no one’s holding their breath.
We know “Trickle Up” theory works. Look at all the billionaires flying into space on the backs of the people that got them there. Time to structure a bill benefiting the working class for a change.
This cartoon would be funny if it wasn’t so true and sad.
You left out the elephant trying to pull the plug.
While many make sky-is-falling gestures on national TV about the costs of doing anything that isn’t “defense”-related, very few people are paying attention to the amount of tax dollars being wasted during the pandemic. Forgetting about how the SBA under the Dotard gave away millions without proper vetting….
In Florida, where masking up or getting the vaccine a punishable offense, they have multiple places you can go to get Regeneron, or monoclonal antibody treatment. A vaccine costs around $20. One treatment of Regeneron is $2100. Which should be more available? What was that about an ounce of prevention?
And beyond that: there will be millions of unpaid and uncollectable hospital bills totaling billions of dollars, mostly run up by people who refuse to act like responsible citizens.
All of this is unnecessary spending, and all anyone wants to talk about is making sure necessary spending is never done.
Two titles for this cartoon: 1) Bring on the Weimar Economy, or 2) Killing the Patient.
Goodwyn proudly displaying his ignorance!
That hammer is going to a LOT of damage. Demoncrats don’t care.
Over ten years and funded. Unlike Republican tax cuts that are never funded.
We get non-stop screaming and rug-munching from trolls, Republicans, and their two-dollar hooker sycophants about the BBB plan which still doesn’t exist_, but here’s a 60-second tutorial. Mehdi Hasan flamed the media (_especially right-wing media) for failing miserably at doing its job, same as every (expletive) so-called “conservative” op-ed artist on Go-Comics. That responsible job being: informing its audience, specifically with regard to anything about President Joe Biden’s reconciliation bill, other than its price tag.
Naturally, trolls and the Republican “base” don’t care what’s in it, as long as they can lie about it and desperately work to make America fail, no matter the collateral damage.
So, for those who don’t want to follow the link, here’s a bullet list.
For Education, the Build Back Better Budget Reconciliation Bill:
- Has an extended child tax credit to cut child poverty by nearly half.
- Universal Pre-K for three- and four-year-olds.
- Free school meals for an extra nine million kids.
- New money to repair run-down schools.
- Two years of community college.
- New powers for Medicare to negotiate drug prices to bring down prescription costs
For Health Care, the Build Back Better Budget Reconciliation Bill:
- Expands Medicare to cover dental, vision, and hearing aids, helping millions of seniors.
- Lowers Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 60, again, helping millions of seniors.
- Expands home care, higher wages for home care workers helping millions of seniors.
- Closes the Medicaid gap for low-income Americans and getting healthcare to four million uninsured people.
For other issues, the Build Back Better Budget Reconciliation Bill:
- New money for housing choice vouchers to tackle homelessness.
- New DoJ grants for non-profits that work on reducing community violence.
- Action on climate change, including a clean electricity performance program that will create nearly eight million new jobs and financial incentives to buy electric vehicles, to build charging stations for them, and for homeowners to weather-fit their homes, plus new forestry and flood control programs.
“HAMMER TIME!” Well the leftists have never hesitated to destroy a thing to remake it into into their own version. The Democrats have a long history of this going back to the Civil War where they were willing to destroy the USA in order to rebuild it into a slaver nation. When they lost, they created the KKK in order to continue their destruction, murder and intimidation to further their own ends. They’ve continuously criticized capitalism in favor of a more socialist, Marxist system and if they have to destroy our economy to bring it about they’ll do so in a heartbeat regardless of the death and suffering it will bring to hundreds of millions Americans. Destruction, it’s what the Democrats do. The low and middle class are the ones who will and are now suffering with the inflation rate causing the price of basic goods to skyrocket. It’s not the rich and super rich that will devastated by the Dems and Biden’s plans, it’s the poor guy and gal living from paycheck to paycheck that will have to tighten their belts a notch, never the rich and not the politicians.
“Let’s Go Brandon!”
The Dixie-crats all flipped to the Republican party after Johnson signed the voting rights bill.
He’s hoping for a smashing success…
