Evan Campbell: Cartoons’ anti-Obamacare angle obtuse

November 13, 2013 

We get it. Political cartoonist Lisa Benson doesn’t like the Affordable Care Act. And she doesn’t like President Obama, or anything connected to him. The Modesto Bee has published several cartoons in which Benson has attacked the ACA with her mediocre cartooning abilities. She is nothing if not a dedicated propagandist of the highest order. That’s her failing, but it doesn’t explain why The Bee feels compelled to print so many of her repetitive, factually challenged pieces of hack work.

The cost of my family’s health care plan is going down next year, but I realize that fact doesn’t fit Benson’s anti-Obama agenda.
