House Votes to Cut Funding for NPR

Congress voted today to cut funding for National Public Radio in a mostly party line vote.  House Republicans said the move was not an ideological attack on NPR, which is viewed by most conservatives as a bastion for liberalism, but rather a fiscal necessity in a time when the government needs to get its monetary house in order.  However that didn’t stop House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virgina from asking “…why should we allow taxpayer dollars to be used to advocate one ideology?”

The measure faces almost certain defeat in the Democrat controlled Senate and even if it were to pass through both chambers the President has firmly stated his opposition to de-funding public radio.
