Tom Tomorrow Gives Us A Dumbo/Moron Hand-Job Today!!!!!!!!

Pace, Adam Smith, because this blog's 'toonist-in-residence — Tom Tomorrow — brings the Invisible Hand (of the Market) into most of his discussions of fiscal policy. Tomorrow mocks the market-worshipping Dumbos/Morons today with "Dr." Invisible Hand explaining the market-based rejection of the Affordable Health Care Act of 2013 to a pair of incredulous non-believers. Dr. Hand's stock response to dissenters is "Zip it!" If only this blog could say that to every Dumbo/Moron in the land: "Zip it, you ignorant loons!" The reason the Dumbos/Morons haven't offered a plausible alternative to the Affordable Health Care Act of 2013 is that they want the status quo for the uninsured: "Go to an emergency room (for a head cold or whatever), give a fake name, and never receive a bill." The catch is that taxpayers end up paying that uncollected bill. If this is (fair & balanced) lunacy, so be it.
