Branco cartoon – Destroying Social Security

Branco cartoon – Destroying Social Security

A.F. Branco produced this cartoon last April for CDN, but it is amazingly appropriate right now.

Democrats, not Paul Ryan, throw granny over the cliff by failing to act like adults in saving Medicare and Social Security.

It’s a fact just now being told in the media, and it is something we have to hit on really hard, because it’s the truth.

Wow, this is great. Everything about this is just perfect. I would love to know whether these are drawn on a pad or on paper or some combination of the two perhaps. The artwork in this is fantastic.

    Thank you Mary… I do use a combination of the two. I start out on paper and finish up in the computer in my Corel Draw program.

      I lifted your cartoon Sir and have it posted over at my blog ….its my understanding that it is O.K. as long as I credit the Professor would you like a link to your work included as well ….in fact I would like a link to your work as I am sure others would …..I may steal many more of them with your permission

    I think the cartoon is very clever but I didn’t appreciate the artwork until you mentioned it. It IS “fantastic”!

      Yep. I love how they’re framed by the lifeless trees and love the sinister orange sky (which matches LI’s color scheme!).

      Nothing like a good political cartoon to get to the essence of an issue.

        I believe the tree on the right represents the Warren Family Tree. It is not only slanted it has a broken branch. I think the Cherokees reclaimed that branch.

        Outstanding work, Tony. You can believe your work will be sent around. Thanks for connecting with the Professor.

Love it !! Brilliant!!

A TV ad with Ryan and his “Medicare senior mom in Florida” needs to be made and played endlessly on TV in Florida.

Ryan has a lot of charm so I’m guessing his mom does, too.

Put the two of them together in a cute ad, and use her status as a Medicare senior in Florida to reassure seniors.

    Well, the IWW (Industrial Workers of the World) are called the “Wobblies”; they certainly fit the bill as “Progressives” in the old sense.

Branco, brilliant!

This is getting passed on to thousands, right now!

I have a vid of obama admitting in an interview that 1/3 of funding for obama care comes from cuts to medicare

Where’s the cartoon?

It must be nice to be a Liberal Democrat. Every day is a new day due to the inability to remember anything.

Tony Branco won’t blow his own horn, but I won’t hesitate to highly recommend his outstanding art. A.F. Branco is more than just cartoons. Check ’em out at:

This might be a suitable cartoon subject for Mr Branco.

The CEO of the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corp is the new NYT President & CEO.

Think about that.
