I didn’t watch the debate but heard bits about it on Fox News this morning. This was one I heard about on there and thought it was kind of funny – and Mitt Romney makes a very valid point: PBS gets donations from it’s viewers so why in the world is it one of America’s millions of subsidies? I’m all for PBS but people should donate to it out of the kindness of their hearts, not by force. Where is it in our US constitution does it state we have to pay for all the subsidies?
To the list of “unlikely subjects of political discussion, 2012,” please add one beloved “Sesame Street” character. The 8’2″ bird entered the conversation at Monday’s first presidential debate in Denver, Colorado, when Republican candidate Mitt Romney answered a question about what he would cut from federal spending. He included the federal subsidy to PBS, which broadcasts “Sesame Street.”
