Paul Ryan


Meet the Republican “Resistance”

When I said I was adjusting my production schedule, I didn’t intend for the comic to be this late. I wrote and started drawing a whole other comic about Trump’s North Korea bluster, but the events in Charlottesville rendered that tone deaf so I started from scratch.

I could’ve easily lumped many Democrats in with this faux-resistance crew, but this goes out to several publications that would’ve thrown the phony alt-left epithet at me and stopped sending me checks.

G.O.P. Triage

Become a patron for a buck a month and see this and every comic early.

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.

Pick Your Health Care Plan

While the American Health Care Act passed the House, and waits for the Senate to do something with it, the funding that keeps Obamacare running is being pulled to justify its repeal. Despite its clunkiness, the Affordable Care Act was a vast improvement over what we had before.

Romneycare, which became Obamacare nationwide, provided me with affordable health insurance that I previously didn’t have access to as a freelancer. But last year I fell into the trap of making just enough money to lose the subsidies, and now I’m paying over $300 a month so some insurance company CEO can rake in millions. And that’s in Massachusetts, where  enough insurance companies are in the markets to offer competitive pricing.

Maybe single-payer isn’t politically possible yet, but we’ll never get there if politicians keep shrugging their shoulders and ruling it out before even trying. Both Ryan Cooper and Emma Roller make a convincing case that the time for single-payer is now.

Finally, screw Joe Lieberman for killing the public option.

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.
