Mitt Romney Says That As President He Would Eliminate NEA Funding

Aug 23, 2012

 Mitt Romney Tells Fortune Magazine that he Would Eliminate the subsidy for the National Endowment for the Arts: 

"Fortune: You've promised to cap government spending at 20% of GDP. Specifically where will you cut?

Mitt Romney: There are three major areas I have focused on for reduction in spending. These are in many cases reductions which become larger and larger over time. So first there are programs I would eliminate. Obamacare being one of them but also various subsidy programs -- the Amtrak subsidy, the PBS subsidy, the subsidy for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities."

We have to wonder: Are arts & humanities supporters a force at the ballot box?
