EVERY PENNY MAKES A DIFFERENCE
For the last 47 years, children and adults all across America have been educated and entertained by PBS. As Donald Trump keeps cutting budgets left and right, we get even more close to funding being cut from the Corporation of Public Broadcasting, which houses outlets like PBS and NPR. The proposed budget is looking to cut $485 million from PBS alone. Along with government funding, a good chunk of resources comes from Viewers Like You!
Back in January, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said:
“When you start looking at places that we reduce spending, one of the questions we asked was, ‘Can we really continue to ask a coal miner in West Virginia or a single mom in Detroit to pay for these programs?’ The answer was ‘No.’ We can ask them to pay for defense, and we will, but we can’t ask them to continue to pay for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.”
