Roll Call: Latest News on Capitol Hill, Congress, Politics and Elections
November 28, 2015

The Apple of Congress’ Eye | Capitol Quip


Illustrator R.J. Matson’s latest cartoon needs a caption.

Apple is back in the news, but it’s not because of a new iPad or iPhone. The company’s tax avoidance strategies are coming under fire from some and serving as a rallying cry for tax overhaul from others. What’s really important, though, is that it all provided us with another Capitol Quip opportunity.

Leave your caption in the comments section below. Editors will pick five finalists on Wednesday, and then everyone can vote for the winner until Thursday afternoon. The winner gets a signed print from Matson.
