The simple idea of the Senate healthcare bill on life support is ironic, funny and thought-provoking all at once. To emphasize the gravity of the GOP mascot and the bill, I used thin line-work on the clothing and machinery. That said, the fine detail is important too. The 76 volts registering on the defribillator is in reference to the 76 votes of support at the time this cartoon was drawn. Just as 76 volts is insufficient to start a heart, the 76 votes are insufficient to pass the bill.
