He doesn’t see a primarily political motive in Gov. Bob’s cut to PBS
Possibly PBS does much in some taxpayers eyes, but not mine.
Anytime I try to catch a program it almost never represents my values nor any one I talk to. So why should you think McDonald only did it for political reasons?
Could it be McDonald does not represent you nor your values? I am sure you had rather keep spending our money on every liberal thing in this country.
Personally I am glad McDonald had the backbone to stand up against most of the crap I see coming out of PBS.
You want it Dan? You and your friends can pay for it.
Thank you for the feedback, it’s always appreciated.
Gov. McDonald left more than $3 million in the budget for PBS.
What he cut via the line-item veto had nothing to do with programming — it was a separate category of funding that’s a resource for public & private school teachers. The column was about his line item veto of that.
Viewed another way: the governor left alone the legislature’s appropriation that funds precisely what you object to in PBS. He decided not to cut a dime from that appropriation.
Thank you for reading the column and for taking the time to write in.
