WATCH: Paul Ryan's Rambo Budget (Cartoon)

| Tue Apr. 19, 2011 2:01 AM EDT

Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. This week's animation features Rambo Paul Ryan. His budget proposal is an assault on the poor, the elderly, the sick and the middle class in defense of millionaires, corporations, Wall Street gamblers and reckless bankers. It brings to mind the ultimate right-wing action hero, John Rambo. As always, that's Saunders doing the voiceover. —The Editors
