/// GOP Targets Big Bird Again
When it comes to defunding public broadcasting, the GOP is like a dog with a bone. Renewing the fight to take public broadcasting off the list of federal appropriations, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Co.) are trolling for lawmakers to sign a letter calling for the Senate and House Appropriation Committees to discontinue funds. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is requesting $445 million for fiscal year 2015. The appropriations bill for fiscal year 2013 is not completed.
