My goal is to keep the Dose as apolitical as possible. And this particular comic still somewhat abides by that, as it doesn’t target one particular party.

This comic has absolutely nothing to do with the current crisis surrounding healthcare and its future in the United States. I mean, it’s not like even the insurance industries are in panic mode at the moment. We can make jokes, comics, skits on SNL, all we like. At the end of the day, we need to find a solution that’s based on evidence and sound financial reasoning. No sound bites, no talking heads or scary headlines.

Or we can watch as Congress tries to rip the roof off of peoples’ houses other than their own, and then spend months trying to figure out how to replace the roof. Not the Congressmembers’ roofs, mind you. They’ll ride out the storms to come just fine. It’s those darned common folk we’re talking about. But as they die off, there will be fewer roofs to replace. What a world.
