Here Comes the Law | Capitol Quip


Major aspects of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law go live on Oct. 1, and Republicans are none too happy about it.  Some want to defund the law, others want to delay it, some want to hold up next year’s federal spending bills over it, some see the debt limit as a bargaining chip against it. Which brings us to this week’s Capitol Quip contest.

Send us a caption for this week’s contest by leaving it in the comments section of our Heard on the Hill blog. Editors will pick five finalists on Wednesday, and everyone can vote for the winner through Thursday.
