Official Cartoonist

Sadly, the Treasury Department has decided not to hire a cartoonist for the office.
The Treasury Department is scrapping plans to hire a cartoonist to lighten the mood of its employees who manage the nation's $1.2 trillion debt, after a senator questioned its merits.

The cartoonist would have been hired by Treasury's Bureau of Public Debt, which accounts for borrowed federal spending, at a time Congress is embroiled in a debate about increased government spending.

"Our training staff felt that at a time when employees are working extra hours, it might have been helpful," said Kim Treat, a spokesman for the bureau.
That's a shame. My wife and I hired a cartoonist and it's been the best thing we've ever done. We're much happier and there's just so much laughter around the house. Also it's much cleaner.

Wait, we hired a house keeper. My bad.
