What goes over the side?

Good morning, Netizens...

David Horsey's cartoon is perhaps a bit off-center here, but it does ask a perfectly-valid question: if such a thing is actually taking place, where the wealthy are getting huge tax cuts while the unemployed benefits are being cut, what does it say about the condition of our economy?

Or, viewed more within the constraints of the cartoon itself, an alligator can swim pretty well, while a poor yellow cat probably doesn't swim worth a damn. Which of the two makes more sense to put over the side in favor of protecting the boat S.S. Economy?

We need to do something about our national unemployment, and judging by the way the economy is diving at times, we probably need to do something pretty quickly. But do we toss the alligator?
