    Default Trump Proposes Eliminating Federal Funding for PBS, NPR

    President Trump's newly proposed budget includes a proposal to end federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), part of a package that includes $300 billion in new spending overall.

    CPB provides federal funding for PBS and National Public Radio stations.

    "The Budget proposes to eliminate Federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) over a two year period," according to the proposal.

    "CPB grants represent a small share of the total funding for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR), which primarily rely on private donations to fund their operations," it continues.

    "To conduct an orderly transition away from Federal funding, the Budget requests $15.5 million in 2019 and $15 million in 2020, which would include funding for personnel costs of $16.2 million, rental costs of $8.9 million; and other costs totaling $5.4 million."

    LOL NPR can't say one kind word about Trump so why would he want to fund them?

    LOL- agree.

    I'd be much more impressed if Trump was getting the country out of continuous meddling and wars; I'm sure that's a lot more expensive than PBS.

    NPR - I live in the middle of nowhere and we get 4 or 5 NPR stations. Waste of resources. Unless you're a Democrat.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    I heard you.

    We went through this about 5 years ago. The leftists here were especially aggressive about Sesame Street. Then PBS got the funding, then promptly sold the show to HBO anyway.
