Republicans are spending their Fourth of July weekend trying to strip their fellow Americans of health insurance and vital Medicaid funding.

I am going to eat hot dogs, because unlike them, I’m a patriotic citizen.

The Privatized States of America

Last week was supposed to be “Infrastructure Week” for the Trump Administration, but Comey and Jeremy Corbyn made sure no one gave a shit. And that’s just what Mitch McConnell wants, so he can rush through the Senate’s Obamacare repeal while people who have fun during the summer aren’t paying attention.

Privatization and monopolization are both bad and terrible, but that’s a lot of complicated “-zations” to narrow down to a soundbite. Thankfully we have the handy phrase, “Capitalism is bad.” to summarize this sentiment.

Washington Witch Hunt

Support my work at Patreon and get cool stuff.

Trump bitched and moaned on Twitter about being the victim of the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American History. It’s a shitty analogy, since witch hunts are baseless, because witches don’t exist.I live close to Salem, Mass., which has built a cottage industry around witch tourism. All the Wiccan parties up there tend to gloss over the fact that those persecuted in the witch trials were normal and it was their accusers who believed in the witch nonsense.

For accuracy, I was going to include the old-timey long s in the title, Waſhington Witch Hunt, but that would be a pain to type every time I promote this comic on social media.

Mitch McConnell Rewrites the Rules

Become a patron and read this  and every comic early, and get some other swag.

After denying Merrick Garland’s appointment to the Supreme Court for nearly a year, Mitch McConnell blew up the rulebook to put Neil Gorsuch into dead Scalia’s seat. If they ever regain power, the Democrats would be wise to use the same tactics to shut out Republicans, instead of pining for the “Days of Decorum” that only existed in pundits’ fever dreams.

Town Hall Exit Plans

Republicans are having a difficult time at town halls in their home districts. Constituents are rightfully angry at them for going along with whatever President Trump wants to do, and letting them hear what they think.

Louie Gohmert not only cancelled his town halls , but cited Gabby Giffords’ shooting as his reason. Not exactly the bravest stance from someone who thinks guns should be everywhere except near him.

The birthday cake gag may seem like a non sequitur, but Tom Cotton really likes birthday cake. Here’s the proof.

Republicans’ Safety Net Cuts

Republicans' Safety Net CutsWith a unified government, the Republicans can kill the last vestiges of the New Deal that survived Reaganomics and austerity. All of these programs are essential and help millions, but they are far from perfect. A smart opposition party would fight to expand and improve them.
