Do You Want to Fund PBS?

2:46 PM

A subcommittee in the House of Representatives voted two days ago to cut funding for Public Broadcasting by 25% this year (from $400 million to $300 million) and to eliminate all funding in two years. What? Who doesn't think that public broadcasting is a good use of $400 million? We are for familiy values but we stop producing Sesame Street, NOVA, Frontline, The News Hour, full coverage of our political parties' conventions? We will be left with only Fear Factor and Law and Order.

It's also important to note that we are currently spending $6.9 billion a month on the war in Iraq (this is based on a total projected spending of $207.5 billion through September 2005 (30 months)).

Sign's petition to show that you want to keep funding PBS with your taxpayer money.
