Description
Text at the top of the cartoon reads 'US debt recovery...' The cartoon shows the feet of an eagle that has landed 'SPLAT' very painfully, plunging right into the earth leaving feathers flying. Text below reads 'The eagle has landed! with only massive cuts and losers'. Context: The United States debt crisis of the past week had ended in a deadlock that needed to be broken in order to prevent default on Tuesday 1 August. President Obama at the last hour made a compromise that many believe was weighted heavily in favour of the Republican stance that meant no change to taxation but cuts in public spending. John Boehner, who proposed to cut $3 trillion (#1.83tn) in federal government spending said, 'When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the white House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I'm pretty happy'. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
