Minimum wage. Filibuster. Cult followers. This week’s top cartoons.

Republicans give billions in tax cuts to wealthy donors but use the filibuster to deny working Americans a living wage.

They gerrymander and deny the poor their right to vote. CPAC becomes their cult event. These cartoons capture it all.
