2008 Luckovich

Luckovich did this cartoon back when Hank Paulson (Bush's Treasurey Secretary) was in charge of bailing out Wall Street..... many are unaware that, prior to becoming Treasury Sec'y, Paulson made millions at Goldman Sachs. Certainly nothing wrong with that, but it does make you wonder if Paulson had a "vested interest" in making sure his Wall Street friends were rescued first.... at tremendous taxpayer expense.
Clearly, that's what Luckovich is trying to convey in this cartoon....

at least paulson cared about business and worked to ensure businesses were "kept afloat" rather than trying to "sink the ship" as they're doing now.

And not only are the passengers of the ship in the cartoon drowning, they are being asked for their wallets!
