Mitt Romney Says That As President He Would Eliminate NEA Funding
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?
