The Public Broadcasting System is funded by your tax dollars. One of its stars, former Johnson Administration official Bill Moyers collects those tax dollars every week in his paycheck. This week, he said this about America:
Moyers “So it shouldn‘t surprise us to learn that the United States collects less in taxes as a share of its economy than all but two other industrialized countries. Our political class in Washington is attempting to fix the debt by sequestration – Washington doublespeak for bleeding services for veterans and the elderly, the sick and poor, for kids in Head Start.”
When Mitt Romney allowed the discussion over funding PBS to be boiled down to a debate over Big Bird. He should have focused on Moyers.
