News late last month that the U.S. House of Representatives had passed an aggressive currency manipulation bill targeting China brought cries of “China bashing” in China’s media, which said U.S. politicians were using China as a popular scapegoat ahead of elections in November. In this cartoon, posted by artist Fan Jianping (范建平) to his QQ blog, Uncle Sam sits in his sick bed, his health deteriorating, as he refuses to take his pills. Uncle Same turns the blame for his condition on China’s RMB currency, represented by the “yuan” symbol on the wall that he raps with his club.
