...And back to healthcare. The subject of health care reform has been common topic for political cartoons in recent history. This drawing is sketchy in style. It uses scribbly hatch-mark like shading. The background is gray and white, while the two men depicted are shown in color, drawing attention to them. The bright red of their ties especially draws the eyes- conveniently bringing attention down towards the names labeling each. On the left, House republican leader John Boehner, and on the right senior United States Senator from Kentucky. Both faces are drawn to look hostile, not to mention that they're about to smother a baby with a pillow- the metaphorical "baby" being the much-debated health care bill. However despite all of the Republicans voting against it, the bill has been passed by the house.
