Demonizing the Opposition

The Congressional Budget Office is the nonpartisan office within the Congress that provides analysis of costs for proposed programs. It has come out with an analysis of the proposed healthcare bill that the administration and congressional Democrats don’t like. What will they do with this disagreeable information? Probably what they do with anyone who disagrees with their plans.

If at first you don’t succeed, demonize your opponent. Every comment in this cartoon, by the way, was made by the individuals represented in the cartoon as they sought to denounce those “disagreeable” citizens at the townhall meetings.

This is not a civil debate, but that’s not the fault of those who oppose the healthcare bill. The blame lies on the backs of those who desired to push this monstrosity through without a real debate.
