Poverty of Ideas Cartoon of the Day

(click to enlarge)

As we noted yesterday, Rethuglican politicians are using the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty to pretend they have credible alternatives, which read like a wish list by the American Taliban (you know, pray more, get married, rely on private charity, etc.).  In the meantime, they'll do everything they can to shred the social safety net through "vouchers," "block grants," and other subterfuges, all to pay for more tax cuts for the 1%.
