Tea Party Galaxy: Voyage to the Center of Delusion

With the government shutdown continuing and no real negotiations happening, it seems that Captain Ted Cruz is still at the helm of the Republican Party.  It's helpful to remember that the Tea Party crew's main demand is an end to Obamacare, a health care reform law that was passed years ago.
Putting it another way, the Republicans, currently led by the Tea Party, are willing to risk a US default in order to keep working class Americans from accessing affordable health care.  This is their best chance to finally drown government in the bathtub, so why would they ever negotiate?  They're having the time of their lives.
And even though the latest Tea Party/Republican talking point is that a default won't really be that bad and we have plenty of money to pay the interest on our debt, I don't think I want to stake the world's economy on Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.  I think the Republican space ship may be a recurring character, let's see how it holds up under the gravitational pull of economic calamity and increasing corporate pressure.  Be sure to like, comment and tell yer friends!  Oh, and you can find more links to the news behind the cartoon on my site.

    I just hope that the President and the Democratic Party and THINKING Republicans (if that's not a contradiction in terms!) stop these Tea Party idiots before they do real damage. Well done, Mr Fiore!

    This communication medium is freaking brilliant. I've seens these as links on other sites but first time here. Why isn't this one of the most visited and commented sites on the Intenet?

    The depiction of the vacuous nature of the right is delicious.

    Wow, the exact talking points from Obama's mouth. I'm an Indy but doubt Reps want to keep healthcare from people. I lived in Europe over 8 years and socialist health care is a joke. It's the DMV all over. We issue 100 billion in fraudulent payments with no oversight here in the US. Can you imagine what it's going to be now?

    We could house all homeless and provide free state college with the money wasted by the Obamacare kind of mentality
