Title: Sacrifices for the deficit
: Daily News of Los Angeles
Date: Jan. 27, 1983
About this cartoon: Under Reagan's administration, spending deficits soared, driven by tax cuts and military spending. Social programs, never a favorite of Reagan, took much of the hit in exchange.
Noteworthy: The idea of making sacrifices came up on occasion, so it was an easy jump to illustrate a different meaning of the word. The shading is pre-computer, using hand-cut shading films.
