    The Republican Party is full of morons who obsess over fictional characters (Murphy Brown, Big Bird, invisible Obama in the chair…). A Good Cartoon.

    Big Bird was brought up because Romney wants to cut funds for everything that the government does not have to have, so of course PBS and Planned Parenthood would be goners. How much money is he prepared to spend to add 15 ships per year to the Navy? Maintain Black Sites? Pay (today’s name for) Blackwater? Maintain Gitmo until the last “guest” dies? Missile Defense Systems? I will go on record as saying that PBS and Planned Parenthood do more good for the world than any of the above-mentioned “untouchables”, and at far less cost. Again, the subject of how to grow some projects and cut others in a revenue-neutral way comes back. And, of course, we can’t survive on revenue-neutral; we have to spend less than we take in. The devil is in the details, and Romney will not give details.

    For example, he wants to repeal Obamacare, and let the states decide for themselves. Can you imagine the fight over Obamacare repeating itself 50 times, as everyone who can afford a legal team challenges from left and right every provision of every plan in every state? This is a recipe for total stagnation for decades, not to mention legal fees and clogging of court dockets. But watch the lobbying money from the insurance industry, paid for by you and me in monthly installments. I’m running for office myself. I want to feed at the trough.

    In the meantime, pre-existing conditions return to the discussion. Now, R&R want to “save” Medicare by giving future seniors vouchers and sending them out to get their own private health insurance. How many 65-year-olds do you know who do not have a pre-existing condition? Being a doctor for 30+ years (hence the screen name), I can tell you that there are almost none. So, most seniors will let their insurance lapse and hope for the best. When the best does not occur, they will show up at the Emergency Room. As everyone (or at least Mr. Romney) knows, e-room care is free!

    R&R want to turn Medicaid into block grants for the states. Sounds good on paper. Now, remember that almost every state in the union sued the tobacco companies to get money to defray the expected nicotine-related costs when smokers get older and can’t breathe anymore. Who believes that money is still sitting in a special place waiting for those bills to come in? That money has already been spent.

    Whether you believe that Medicaid recipients deserve it or not, the fact remains that, if this plan is put into action, they did have coverage, and then they won’t. And when they get sick, they’re going to the emergency room.

    If you think health care costs are high now, add e-room care for people “moved out” of Medicare and Medicaid.

    Even if the result is the ONLY increase in government spending (because it AIN’T free, Mr. Romney), it will be enough to make Obama’s deficits look like a walk in the park.

    I recognize that Romney is not Obama. That seems to me to be his only qualification to be president. Out of the frying pan…..

    PBS does not need any Govenent Funding as they have Fund Raising drives by airing special Concerts with outstanding musicians such as the Late Ray Charles, The still living Arlo Guthrie and Stevie Wonder to name a few

    What about Obama’s huge flaws?

    Why did Obama fail to come out of the gate attacking Romny’s 47% comment and attacking his handling of Bain Capital?

    I’ve got the stake.
    By the way you do know that Big Bird is a 1%er, hes worth billions!

    I said Romney wants to kill a television network, PBS.
    This is different than acting like a television character is real.
    I know you right wingers can’t tell the difference by your comments.
    Romney wants to kill PBS because he can’t make a profit of it so therefore it is ‘left wing’.

    The right wants PBS and NPR to fund themselves like the rest of TV and radio.I seem to remember the leftwingnut hosts on Air America didn’t make it when they had to get advertisers to support them like the rest of radio. I wonder why that happened could it be that no one listens to the left wing tripe?Look at the viewership for MSNBC and the declining CNN and all the other leftwing news nerds.

    If PBS got as much taxpayer money as “Liberty University” (in violation of the Constitutional separation of church and state) they’d be sitting pretty, and “Big Bird” could drive a Ferrari.

    They’d have to exist outside your hateful fantasies first.

    Funny how out one side of their mouths libs demonize anyone who earns their money, and out the other expect taxpayers to subsidize Lerher’s million dollar salary. Not to mention PBS is plenty profitable and the taxpayer money foes straight into their controllers’ pockets, but then liberalism and reality do not mix.

    You’re nuts McCoy – A national survey by the bipartisan research firms of Hart Research and American Viewpoint in 2011 found that over two-thirds of American voters (69%) oppose proposals to eliminate government funding of public broadcasting, with Americans across the political spectrum against such a cut. The survey further stated that supporters would vote against anyone proposing a cut to PBS.
    Are you so stupid as to thing 69% of the people that support PBS are all “The Left”? If that’s the case – romney is DONE – big bird or not!
