Trump's Budget Blueprint Eliminates NPR, PBS


The budget blueprint is out:

Look who’s being eliminated/axed: Public Broadcasting is on the list…

“The Budget also proposes to eliminate funding for other independent agencies, including: the African Development Foundation; the Appalachian Regional Commission; the Chemical Safety Board; the Corporation for National and Community Service; the Corporation for Public Broadcasting; the Delta Regional Authority; the Denali Commission; the Institute of Museum and Library Services; the Inter-American Foundation; the U.S. Trade and Development Agency; the Legal Services Corporation; the National Endowment for the Arts; the National Endowment for the Humanities; the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation; the Northern Border Regional Commission; the Overseas Private Investment Corporation; the United States Institute of Peace; the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness; and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.”
A good place to start negotiations.

Good bye, Big Bird. I loved you as a child, but I don't like paying for you as an adult. Of course, you are more political than educational these days. I suppose you have changed and we have just grown apart.

I called my congressperson today and said: As long as we are running a budget deficit, the priority that we must place on funding PBS and NPR is so far down below zero that I urge you to support setting their federal subsidy to zero.
