Cartoon – Health Care Train Wreck

As you’ve probably guessed, I enjoy, and find insight in, political cartoons. This one struck home especially in light of the preceding essay by Goldhill. Click here.

It’s interesting to contemplate how the opposition to the current reform effort would have fared if it had put forth a coherent argument for an alternative as does Goldhill, and not simply stating its opposition and using scare tactics to enrage its base.

Unfortunately, this reinforces my belief that the leaders of both political parties are motivated more by gaining and holding on to power than by increasing the public good.

Maybe some day that will change.

Update: Here is another one from Matt Wuerker with Politico. Click here.
