  1. I have been staring at this for awhile trying to figure out all of the messages it is sending. For one thing, it definitely shows how America does not demonstrate enough focus on preventative methods for health care. America has a major problem with obesity that leads to lots of preventable heath problems later in life. This cartoon could also represent just how "big" of a problem we have and how badly we need Obama (the "doctor") to make us healthy again. The man's obesity could also represent how inflated the health care costs are in the United States, and the "reform" heart beat could represent what we need to survive.

    The doctor's facial expression could represent the stress that President Obama has when trying to fix such a daunting issue, or in this case, all the weight that needs to be lost.
