If pushing came to shoving, I seriously doubt Romney would pull PBS funding, so don't take it so literally.
He said himself he loves PBS. He was clearly just making a point regarding government funded programs that may need to be reevaluated, and if they need to be cut, then so be it.
Besides, Obama said himself over a year ago, everyone needs to make sacrifices, that includes the big, gay, yellow bird that has been living off the government for over 40 years, even though he is capable of making it on his own.
He ain't a bird, he's a leech.

The problems with cutting government funding, it always come from people who don't ahve the political clout to fight back or from programs we need to fund their personal pet pork projects. politicians wouldn't dare cut their own programs because they'd lose their voters if they did.

So it's always from somebody else.

Which is why I'm always wary of when government talks about cutting spending.

We need a president willing to risk re-election for the good of the people. He would likely stand out as one of the greatest presidents of all time.

As for PBS? Well, they will just have to stand on their own 2 feet like every other TV channel in America. Making profits vs being on the dole. Then maybe they can start giving back some of our tax dollars. Year right....

Do you know all of the profits on Seseme street branded products are made out of this country? This is the thanks we get for our tax support?

Even this is rebutted.

Big Bird’s Salary Is $314K, But Don't Call Him A 1 Percenter
www.ibtimes.com...

$516,633 salary necessary for inclusion in a list of the top 1 percent of Americans.


Here's your 1 percenter:

Joseph Mazzarino, a veteran puppet master who has been with the series since 1990, received $556,165 in compensation in 2010.


According to article federal funds account for only 2% of the Sesame Street budget.

Waa waa waa

Of all the crap this country is facing and the issue that makes the left upset, and wants to march on washington the most is":

Seasame street!

Not drones over American skies.
Not a 16 trillion dollar deficit.
Not the Ndaa

Freaking puppets!

That right there shows just exactly who is the puppet and who is their masters.

Maybe the government should disguise its drones as the Muppet and nobody would think to shoot down Kermit. Maybe Miss Piggy, but not Kermit.

Sesame Street makes millions of dollars off of toys, cloths, etc.

PBS CEO makes close to a million a year.

Dora the Explorer from Nick Jr. doesn't take a government subsidy and does just fine.

Cutting wasteful spending is a great idea, and what better place to start than PBS/NPR

LIke I said, Sesame Street doesn't make any money off of merchandising. Foreign companies do! Your other comments are very valid though and I agree!

When the President/Government,
defends puppets on public television,
is he admitting he is one,
or is someone else is pulling the strings?

I would rather see taxpayer funded subsidies cut from oil companies that are making record profits at our expense.
Essentially paying once at the pump but also from our taxes.



news.yahoo.com...

How about subsidies to agribusiness for not growing crops to keep the prices high.

www.politifact.com...

Let's not forget about the taxpayer funded subsidies paid to big pharmaceutical companies.

Corporate welfare sucks!! Especially when they are sticking it in the working mans *** by ever increasing prices.
