How do you feel about PBS?

Government funding spent $300 million funding PBS. This is expected to increase. Romney wants to cut funding on PBS. Agree? Disagree? 

I think this should be the least of our worries. PBS is educational. Sure, there are other ways to learn. But why is it they always want to take away from education. Sure, slash the budget on PBS, let them ad some commercials to make up the difference. But why completely cut it?

Did you know the Pentagon spends $11 billion annually on psychics to give insight on foreign threats? Or how $440,000 goes to paying someone to push the buttons on the elevator on Capital Hill so Representatives and Senators don't have to...really???

Why are they so wasteful?

I hadn't heard about the budget thing. We love PBS. It's the only station we watch.

PBS accounts for about .01% of the budget. Getting rid of it won't help fix the problem. If that is all he's got, I am not impressed.

I feel Romney only mentioned PBS because he was looking straight at the moderator and it popped in his head. He will be cutting a whole lot of unnecessary programs and he should.

People want the country to fix the deficit but bitch when cuts are proposed.

We love PBS. It's only something like .012 of the budget or something like that, and gets a lot of public donations for programming. Romney's just a dickweed trying to brainwash the masses. He doesn't even think everyone should be able to college. He thinks it should only be for the privileged.
