Dr. Ryan’s ACA Replacement

The Affordable Care Act (Which is the same as Obamacare, despite the fact that the two names get very different levels of support.) is going to be repealed. Its replacement is going to be our old way of letting more people die of preventable disease.

While an improvement over that, the ACA is far from great and should be improved and expanded. Politicians who deluded themselves into pretending the ACA was perfect and needed no improvements had a hard time selling that to the public who actually uses it. Single Payer is a goal that every campaign should champion. Save the “let’s stick to what’s politically possible” for the end of a debate. Starting from there is a loser’s game.

President Obama’s Last-Minute To Do List

Looking for today’s comic? Here it is:

I posted it here because my run with “The Strip” at The New York Times‘ Sunday Review has come to an end. I want to thank everyone there for giving my cartoons a prominent home for the past five years and change. And I give the most thanks to the art directors who patiently waited while I blew past deadlines, and the copy editors who saved me from many embarrassing typos.

As you can tell from the comic you just read, I haven’t stopped drawing weekly cartoons. Now that I’m no longer confined by print dimensions, I’ve switched things up to a more smartphone-friendly vertical format. Here are links to places where you can continue reading my weekly comic:


Daily Kos Comics


And now that my schedule has lightened, I’m able to draw more exclusive stuff for The Nib. I’m already working on a bunch of new comics for them starting next week.

You can also follow me on Twitter or Facebook to know whenever I publish something new.

If you run a publication and want to include my cartoons, or commission exclusive work, get in touch!

Finally, if you want to ask me a bunch of questions about what’s going on at The New York Times, I’ll save you some time: I don’t know! I’m a freelancer and only went inside their building twice. The elevators are confusing.
