I'll play devil's advocate here a bit. Although nobody would like to see funding for PBS and NPR cut off completely of taxpayer subsidies more than me, it's a drop in the bucket compared to defense and entitlement spending.

What we need is an across the board cut in gov't spending. No exceptions. And that includes military.

Cut it 10% now. Then freeze the budget until we at least get the national debt back under 5 trillion.
