jobs democrats stimulus deficit

This cartoon was inspired by an awful AP story that was talking about how the big losers in the midterms were sure to be the liberal wing of the Democratic party, who took the Congressional majority’s eye off of jobs by instead focusing on things like clean energy and healthcare, as if 1) the moderates and Republicans weren’t the ones who diluted the stimulus and slammed the breaks on any and all additional job-creation measures and as if 2) job creation wasn’t a key component of both clean energy and healthcare legislation.

The ability of news reporters to just mindlessly latch on to unsubstantiated narrative scripts would be annoying if it weren’t so depressing.
