Poor Hank…he only knows 3 tunes. [sigh]
Good thing our ultra-sane, stable genius got rid of that stoopid and crazy pandemic response team! Now that’s real leadership!
Vintage Republican head worm…aged to perfection.
For all the bumps of the Obamacare rollout, it’s still what’s in place because the GOP has nothing to replace it with.
Wisely, the Trumpsters preemptively repealed Obama’s pandemic response program, so they wouldn’t have to worry about coming up with any better ideas. /s
“Nobody knew pandemic response was this complicated!”
Considering we managed to avoid ebola, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.
Trump likes his pandemics aged like a fine Trump Wine.
Trump wet the bed, but Obama. Seek help Payne!
This is disgusting even for Payne … Is Eric providing him with toon topics?
Yet “Obamacare” insures millions. Saving more lives. How would adding those potential deaths look on the running total of Covid-19 fatalities? Or on the “bottom line” for the institutions that would still be required to provide services(in theory)?
Republicans lack of testing has spread the virus all over the country and set American science back two hundred years.
Old and shopworn crap.
So Pain is pointing out that Trump still hasn’t replaced Obamacare like he promised?
States that expanded Medicaid under ACA had a greater DECREASE in cancer deaths than states that did not expand Medicaid.
Your stupid Payne toon for the day…
Payne must be suffering from Branco envy. This cartoon is utterly dishonest.
Now, from a safe distance, Obama’s like those scavengers who come out of the hills after a train wreak, shoot the survivors and steal their valuables. He hasn’t changed a bit :-)
I will express the same comments about every other Payne cartoon.
The average age of a news paper subscriber is about 60
People over 60 are more likely to be Covid Casualties.
Since Payne isn’t taking the deaths of his papers reader seriously he should be fired.
I know that Bob Rodgers needs a new paper. He wold be a great hire.
Obama’s record vs trump’s record,I will take Obama in a heartbeat. Meanwhile the stable genius’ heart may stop beating due to his stupidity (one can hope)
In December 2014, then-President Barack Obama warned the United States: “There may and likely will come a time in which we have both an airborne disease that is deadly,” Obama said. “And in order for us to deal with that effectively, we have to put in place an infrastructure—not just here at home, but globally—that allows us to see it quickly, isolate it quickly, respond to it quickly, so that if and when a new strain of flu like the Spanish flu crops up five years from now or a decade from now, we’ve made the investment and we’re further along to be able to catch it.” In March 2009, H1N1, was identified in Mexico before spreading quickly across the rest of the world. . The Obama administration acted early and decisively to prevent the swine flu pandemic from devastating the U.S. instructing every federal agency to play a role in preparing the U.S. for a pandemic. H1N1 was first detected in the U.S. on April 15, 2009 and within a week, the CDC had already begun working to develop a vaccine and activated its Emergency Operations Center to respond. By April 28, 2009, the Food and Drug Administration approved a new CDC test to detect H1N1 infections. Obama’s response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak was similarly marked by action. . The U.S. sent thousands of health officials to Africa, where the virus was spreading, to help with response efforts and limit the virus’ spread. The Obama administration helped create 15 treatment centers in the region, provided PPE and medical relief supplies to the countries, and conducted aggressive contact tracing to identify how the virus was spreading to limit its spread beyond Western Africa. There were an estimated 12,469 deaths from H1N1 in the United States. Only one person in the United States died from Ebola after traveling from West Africa to Dallas, Texas.
To help the incoming administration be better prepared to fight future pandemics, officials under President Obama took what they learned from these battles and prepared a 69-page playbook. written by Obama’s National Security Council, which detailed strategies for when and how to obtain personal protective equipment, and included recommendations on how the government should move quickly to detect and contain potential outbreaks, secure additional funding, and possibly even invoke the Defense Production Act to compel private companies to produce needed medical supplies..Outgoing Obama administration officials also prepared a “tabletop exercise” just days before Trump’s inauguration, in which they briefed Trump’s top aides on the potential dangers of a pandemic—such as the one now devastating the United States. As Politico reported in March, the Trump team was told it could face specific challenges, such as shortages of ventilators, antiviral drugs, and other medical essentials. Obama administration officials emphasized that having a coordinated, unified national response was “paramount.” But the Trump administration ignored the playbook Instead, spending weeks downplaying the virus, which they knew about in late December, spouting rampant misinformation and contradicting his own medical and scientific advisors. Even as he began to acknowledge the reality of the pandemic, Trump refused to take responsibility for the shortages of ventilators, PPE, and other medical supplies, stating “no one could have seen this coming.”Instead, as the Associated Press reported, the Trump administration wasted nearly two months that could have been used to bolster the federal stockpile of critically needed supplies and equipment. Federal agencies waited until mid-March to begin placing bulk orders of N95 respirator masks, mechanical ventilators, and other equipment needed by front-line health care workers. By then, it was too late.
Payne, political cartoons are expected to exaggerate, embellish, mock, critique and push/chide favored agendas of the author. It says a lot about you that you feel the NEED to flat out lie.
Hey, Hank, you stupid, ignorant fool. Remember Zika? Yeah, you effing idiot, the virus that was deadlier than COVID? Do you remember how few people died? Maybe, just maybe, that was because Obama knew how to handle a public health threat.
“Ultimately, as President, I am responsible” – Barack Obama
“No, I don’t take any responsibility at all” – Donald Trump
6/19/19 Trump promises new healthcare plan rollout ‘in a couple of months’ to replace the disaster that is obamacare, during an ABC interview. https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/448829-trump-says-he-will-roll-out-new-health-care-plan-in-next-couple-of
Trump made this same promise throughout his 2016 presidential campaign.
He made it again recently, but as with a promised COVID-19 vaccine neither will be ready until ‘around the end of the year.’
Is Trump making Americans a promise (reelect me as President, and I promise you these two goodies [forget that I didn’t deliver on my first obamacare replacement promise, and that is an order!), or is Trump issuing Americans a threat (elect anyone besides me, and no vaccine or new healthcare plan, America!)?
Hank is beyond redemption. Trump has made it more difficult for people to get insurance at a time when many people need it and are losing their job-connected policies. And here’s Hamster-brain Hank trying to make a joke about Obama’s effort to get people affordable insurance. And with this, I’m removing Mr. Payne-In-The-Ass’ stupid strip from “My Comics”. Adios numbnutz.
Do you bother to read much Henry? They gave Trump the playbook and he ignored it. His own administration tried to alert him, he ignored them. And now we’re in so deep that only the 1%ers will be able to have anything close to the pre-COVID lifestyle.
Is Payne comparing the Roll out of Obamacare to the Federal Government Reprocess to Covid?
