Republican extremists in Congress have spent months refusing to address the important issues facing our country, deciding to focus instead on the demands of the Tea Party.
Now they’re trying to defund Sesame Street, Curious George, and public news coverage. While these cuts – a full funding repeal to both National Public Radio and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting – won’t have an impact on our budget deficits, they will hurt quality programming and cripple a crucial public service.
Democrats saved public broadcasting in the most recent round of budget negotiations, but Republicans aren't going to let up.
Join Senate Democrats today in the fight against Republican extremism. Stand up for NPR and PBS before it’s too late.
