The Writing’s on the Wall | Capitol Quip

capitolquipnew061413Illustrator R.J. Matson’s latest cartoon needs a caption.

As the Senate plods forward on a bipartisan immigration overhaul, many House members have been reluctant to take up a comprehensive bill. And one of the Senate bill’s authors, Republican Marco Rubio of Florida, is insisting his own bill needs stronger border security provisions to pass either chamber. What’s the future for this mine field of a policy debate?

Leave us 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.

  • GNH

    Listen up! We know there is a huge gap between the razor wire and the wall, but in an effort to instill cooperation, compromise, and an air of trust we ask that you ignore reality. You know, similar to what we do on most legislation.

    No! It’s not a megaphone, it’s a dunce cap! Pelosi let me borrow it.
