This cartoon trivializes an act of humanity and generosity our legislators rarely display. The GOP has not been reaching out to people like the man the New York Police Officer helped. They certainly haven’t thought such people were worth a greater investment of time or money in order to help them get off of the streets.And Obama has not asked for an unlimited credit card, he has asked for the same kind of common sense reinvestment in our infrastructure, schools, and people that brought Americans out of the first depression. He has frequently said the deficit is a threat to American security, but that in the immediate future, before we achieve that long term goal, we need to fix that which is broke now.We need people to reach out to their neighbors but this cartoon turns an act of kindness into an farce. Both parties need to work together, and when the media encourages division and sarcasm, it is easy for the rest of us to lower the standard to that which has been set for us.We are better than that, and this is the time of year to prove it.Respectfully,& Happy HolidayzeC.
