How You Know You're On The Right Track has the latest on the evil designs of those dastardly Republicans in Congress:

I guess we shouldn't be surprised.

With Republicans back in charge of the House of Representatives, funding for NPR and PBS is in grave danger. Again.

The Republicans just released their budget proposal, and it zeroes out funding for both NPR and PBS—the worst proposal in more than a decade.

The worst proposal in more than a decade? Really? Kudos House Republicans. Kudos!

They probably think that no one will notice these cuts in the midst of so many others. But the millions of listeners and viewers who rely on public broadcasting for "Sesame Street," "All Things Considered," and independent journalism will notice.

We need to tell Republicans that cutting off funding was unacceptable last time they were in charge, and it's unacceptable now. why would a blatantly partisan organization such as be so pasionate about defending Public Broadcasting, that beacon of "independent" journalism?
