Mitt Romney De-fund PBS: Kill Big Bird
Mitt Romney Quote Cut Funding To Public Television To Protect Tax Cut For Already Rich People
"I'm sorry, Jim. I'm going to the stop the subsidy to PBS. I'm going to stop other things," Rmoney said. "I like PBS. I love Big Bird. I actually like you, too."
Mitt Romney vows to fire Big Bird to save 0.00014% of the budget while planning 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts for millionaires.
When Bill Clinton left office we were on track to pay down the debt by 2.3 trillion dollars while paying for PBS, the thousands of teachers that have been fired since 100% republican control. While paying for social safety nets that have been in place for decades... Republican handed out 3 trillion dollars in tax rebates almost all of going to the top couple of percent of people that were already doing just fine and dandy.
It was to create jobs, you know trickle down economics. Well where are the jobs? Two thirds of America's most successful corporation now pay now taxes. GE made 14.3 billion dollars in profit in 2011 and paid zero dollars in federal taxes. So yeah, let's gut the things that benefit the majority of Americans so they can keep more.
Get rid of the republican tax cuts, close the loopholes, give tax breaks to people who create American jobs, tax corporations the outsource a little extra. Take that money and hire teachers back. Repair roads, bridges, hire more cops and firemen. Build more schools. Retrain coalminers who are loosing their jobs. Put veterans to work (the republicans just blocked veterans jobs bill that would be fully funded and get thousand of vets to work, part of make Americans suffer to make Obama fail like all the other things they have blocked).
