GOP full speed ahead to de-fund NPR
This latest development in what appears to be an internal meltdown at National Public Radio only strengthens my resolve to eliminate all federal funding for NPR and its parent organization, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting," said Rep. Doug Lamborn, the Colorado Republican who is leading the effort to defund both NPR and CPB.
"Our concern is not about any one person at NPR," said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. "Rather, it's about millions of taxpayers. NPR has admitted that they don't need taxpayer subsidies to thrive, and at a time when the government is borrowing 40 cents of every dollar that it spends, we certainly agree with them."
