I didn’t find a larger context in which to use this today, but it’s great on its own anyway. Michael Ramirez looks to the next round of the fiscal fight, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of Investors Business Daily does the math for us:
The problem is the spending, not the ceiling — but raising the ceiling won’t fix the spending problem, either. As Barack Obama himself insisted when voting against a debt-ceiling increase in 2006.
Also, be sure to check out Ramirez’ terrific collection of his works: Everyone Has the Right to My Opinion, which covers the entire breadth of Ramirez’ career, and it gives fascinating look at political history. Read my review here, and watch my interviews with Ramirez here and here. And don’t forget to check out the entire Investors.com site, which has now incorporated all of the former IBD Editorials, while individual investors still exist.
