In a decided whack to the collectivist state, the House voted today to defund the tools over at NPR:
The House passed a bill Thursday – with many voting along party lines – to block federal funding of National Public Radio . The bill is not expected to pass the Senate and the White House opposes it.Wait until 2012, those traitors in the Senate will thrown out, too
Texas Republicans, who all voted in favor of the bill, argue that the defunding of NPR isn't about ideological differences, but another way to curb government spending.
Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Dallas, said that defunding NPR was a "way to reduce job-destroying spending."
"NPR is widely recognized as a partisan media outlet that has long served as a platform for decidedly left-leaning programming and commentary," Hensarling said. "This is a highly objectionable trait for an organization that is funded by American taxpayers."
