New Yorker Cover Depicts Obama Giving GOP Its Medicine

by Josh Encinias

The April 14 issue of The New Yorker features caricatures of Ted Cruz, Michele Bachmann, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner being spoon-fed President Obama’s medicine.

The image marks Obama’s recent victory lap after hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups.

“This whole enterprise was just an elaborate excuse,” cartoonist Barry Blitt said. Blitt said he enjoyed drawing the GOP congressmen as “petulant children” and he “especially wanted to draw an open-mouthed Mitch McConnell being spoon-fed his meds.”
