Here are several cartoonists’ depictions on the state of welfare programs, social security, etc…The illustrations provide a different perspective of welfare. Feel free to express your thought on how you interpret the illustrations.
Cartoon 2(Note: The small boat says “social programs”.)
Cartoon 3 (Note: As of 2007, there was a flood of baby boomers who took advantage of their social security benefits. Editorial cartoons depicted the rush that the elderly took on the system. The old man represents AARP.)
Cartoon 4 (Note: President Ronald Reagan, along with representative Republicans from Florida (Mica and Dantzier) and Wyoming (Cubin), along with a mother on welfare and her rights being dumped as useless).
