Obama won’t Cut Big Bird, so What Will He Cut

Posted by madjillmom on October 11, 2012

Obama has continued to “lead from behind” on cuts to the federal government.  He has not used any political capital to push for reforms in entitlements and has stood by while the threat of sequestration threatens to decimate the military in a dangerous world.

Now Obama and his campaign is running around the country on our dime laughing it up about Big Bird and Elmo being in the crosshairs of Romney’s gun.  He won’t let that happen.  If he can’t bring himself to cut funding to PBS/Bill Moyers/Sesame Street how will he ever be able to deal with the really hard stuff like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Sequestration?  Where is his leadership? Is it too much to ask that he consider the actual future of our great country?

Big Bird is Rich – Why does Sesame Street Need Taxpayer Funds?

Posted by madjillmom on October 7, 2012

Lots of big jokes about Romney going after PBS and Sesame Street.  This is a good place to cut something that need not be subsidized by the American Taxpayer.  PBS will carry on with donations from the idle rich and the academic elite. Sesame Street will continue to be rich as kids everywhere buy licensed merchandise from the toy stores. There are thousands of Sesame Street episodes available for viewing on PBS stations. The alphabet hasn’t changed and it is not necessary to have Katie Perry or some other current star doing the Sesame Street stick. Just replay the old ones every few years.

Stop whining and starve the beast!
