While businesses in the private sector have been forced to cut well over 2 percent of their budgets during this economic downturn, National Public Radio can’t seem to live without the 2 percent of it’s budget that comes from taxpayer subsidies.
Tomorrow, Congress will begin consideration of H.R. 1076 to defund National Public Radio. This will end the over $100 million in annual taxpayer subsidies, leaving this money in the private economy. There are a multitude of reasons to support defunding NPR. It is yet another massive spending program that contributes to our $14 trillion debt. It creates a competitive disadvantage for other broadcasters who exist without such subsidies. It shatters the notion of an independent media necessary in a free country.
Whatever your reason, CLICK HERE NOW to save taxpayers over $100 million per year and defund NPR.
