Some people may agree with the government not funding PBS, but please everyone should take note and also rewatch that clip of Romney saying he will cut funding to PBS. Note the gleefulness in his voice, the excitement in his presentation of that remark and remember that it was he who said he actually "Likes Firing People".Remember that Scrooge like attitude when you go to vote. You could be the next "bird" to be axed. Also, remember this was the same guy who put his dog on the roof of his car for a 12 hour trip. Maybe this guy just doesn't like animals!!

Tens of Millions of dollars are made from the sale of dolls and every kind of the "streets" promo items. PBS anchors like Bill Moyers make millions of dollars each year also. So why should the taxpayer support programming that could very easily be sold on the commercial TV market? If it can't then let it fail and go off the air like every commercial network. Why should the taxpayer pay for high salaries for entertainers that only entertain themselves with high salaries and no viewers. The Street will be picked up by a commercial network in a minute and then they will have salaries that are equal to other production companies not the high pay they now receive from the taxpayer.
