    Set the Count free & let Big Bird fly home to what’s left of Sesame Street.

    Man, I got sad seeing the Count and Oscar is such dire circumstances. This is a depressing ’toon.

    What budget math? All the rate cuts will be financed by not cutting loopholes and we’ll make it up on the volume.-No time, no time! People would change the channel!

    I believe this is a clear and factual representation of mittens stated plans for PBS and NPR. Maybe it was fortuitous he let this one slip out… oh wait, he’s been saying that all along. Some of us Americans have just not let it sink in until now.-This one turns out to be consistent over time and not one of his infamous flip flops.

    Think about your $5 trillion tax cut number a moment, Dred. If the cut on their investment tax rate was from 15% to 0% the group you mention would have to make $33 trillion dollars on their investments. Now, Imagine the amount that group would have to invest to make that much money. The entire dollar value of the entire United States is $110 trillion. (per, maybe not the best source)

    MIt and Ryan want PBS, NPR, and Big Bird dead because they actually report news accurately, and teach kids to add, subtract and do basic math: which shoots down all their budget and economic data supporting their other “plans”.

    Yup, double down on “defense” at three new submarines a year (for what?), and cut taxes in half or more, and the budget will balance itself. This isn’t “Sesame Street”, it’s the story of 3,000 little pigs in banking and on Wall Street.

    By the looks of this cartoon Matt, the most dangerous Muppet is still at large…What if Ms Piggie made through the mountains and is now living in London (where the Muppet show was originally produced) ? And those shell companies in the Department of Defense call ‘Armed Forces Radio and TV’ that are broadcasting PBS programs to American soldiers and their dependents overseas secretly supporting the123 Sesame Street subversives and bleeding the DoD of precious funding…Some body call jack Welch and Faux News…get the word out out on BS Mountain….OUR NATION IS IN DIRE PERIL !

    Actually, guys, a rep from CTW has said that Sesame Street can survive without federal funding; the show makes enough in the way of license fees, royalties, and corporate donations to where federal funding isn’t needed. As such, the company would much rather Sesame Street be left out of any discussion concerning PBS and its federal funding levels.

    As Liberty University takes in more than PBS (all of it, not just CTW) maybe Mitt will cut that funding and shut down THAT abuse of the Constitution??

    Giving away tax cuts. Unfunded tax cuts. Discretionary funding. Good terms to assert that all money belongs to the government and you only have what wealth is allowed to you. Keynesian spending to improve the economy actually works where that spending is defined as not taking money out of the economy in the first place. Big Bird and Elmo have very lucrative marketing deals that aren’t “given back”.

    No worries. If Mitt is elected his cabinet will have plenty of muffits. (Only the names are changed to protect the innocent.)
