*In a nod to President Barack Obama surpassing his goal of 7 million Americans signing up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, the April 14 issue of “The New Yorker” shows him forcing the victory down his haters’ throats.

The illustration  shows Obama gleefully feeding medicine to a little boy – a.k.a. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky).

Artist Barry Blitt told the magazine, “I enjoyed drawing Ted Cruz, John Boehner, and Michele Bachmann as petulant children—and I especially wanted to draw an open-mouthed Mitch McConnell being spoon-fed his meds.”
