Also, that was my point. Stop funding PBS and save 450m, more or less, per year. How much do you have to raise taxes on the "rich" to get there?
Romney was unfairly ripped for the PBS comments. Essentially, we should cut the government subsidy and let PBS be a "voluntary tax", which can only survive if it can find enough sponsors. If enough people see a benefit to it, it will get funded.
If it can't attract enough funds, it will die. And if it can't attract enough funds, it SHOULD die.
