This cartoon is in reaction, really, to not just the Democrats’ tendency to water down health care reform, but also the proclivity to bargain from weakness on many issues. The stimulus plan, for example, was a case where the Dems bent over backwards to seek “bipartisanship” only to be rewarded with no Republican votes for the plan. None. Zippo. The result was a more cautious stimulus which many, including uber-economist Paul Krugman, have warned was too small to have the desired result. Here’s hoping that the final health care reform product is not such thin gruel.
