He didn't say that he wants to get rid of Big Bird or Elmo...he said that he would stop the federal government subsidy for PBS...if people want to keep PBS going then they should support it...I have never understood why the government pays anthing to PBS anyway

Quoting fallnangel3:




I didn't see the debate and i don't know what Romney said about PBS or Big Bird but as for the cutting if 0.012% of the budget...I think what this poster is trying to say is if we cut a dozen or so of the smaller programs it does make a difference. Not enough to get us out if debt, but it's like gas station runs. Spending a couple if dollars in soda, or coffee, or a pack of gum adds up. If you cut those small expenditures you find that you have saved the money needed to pay a cable bill or phone bill. I think that was the point that she was trying to make.

With all the money he makes from selling his t shirts and stuffed self, Big Bird can afford to pay his own way.

He says to lower the countries debt by cutting out things that we really don't need, like funding tv programs.

I am not a Romney supporter, but to be fair, he has a point on that. He's not getting rid of big bird, he is just cutting government funding on it, it is funded by other sources and with the amount of revenue sesame street brings in, they won't have a problem keeping it on air. The countries in debt, he was just saying we shouldnt fund things that aren't necessities, like tv shows, and stick to things that are.
