    "A group of conservative Republicans, called the Republican Study Committee, revealed a new plan on Thursday to cut federal funding for arts down to zero. This means the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities would be left in the cold. Not to mention the potential hit at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Run by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the over 150-person group's plan, the Spending Reduction Act of 2011, would "save" $167.5 million pulled from the NEA and the Humanities endowment and $445 from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. They are forecasting that this erasure of cultural funding would reduce federal spending by $2.5 trillion over the next decade."

    What is more outrageous is not what's on it, but what's not: defense spending.

    q1w2e3 saidWhat is more outrageous is not what's on it, but what's not: defense spending.




    I noticed that glaring oversight too !!! they've got all the bases covered though to protect their own (the NEO CONS and big business) though don't they !!! Not cuts to BIG OIL subsidies were there ??


    these F'rs are so easy to see through !!!
