A Moment With Joe Biden: Helping Big Bird

And now, a moment with Joe Biden…

BIDEN: …but there are some folks on the other side that want to cut off funding to PBS. PBS! Apparently, they have a problem with Big Bird. I’m serious. I’m serious folks. These folks are upset because a few million dollars goes to help fund Sesame Street. Such a worthwhile program. Tax dollars well spent, I’ll tell ya. Well, I know a lot of families that love Big Bird, whose kids learned to read and write, in part, from watching Big Bird. So, when Romney cuts funding to PBS, Big Bird will go away. He’ll go away folks. How else are they going to get the money to produce these great programs? How? I mean, c’mon man, how much can they possibly make by selling some clothing, and toys, and making movies? These shows cost thousands of dollars to produce. A business like that can’t survive without help from the government… everybody knows that. But, apparently not these Republicans. They think that somehow a show like Sesame Street or Barney the Dinosaur can make enough money just by selling merchandise to keep on going. Apparently, they just don’t understand how businesses work…

This has been a moment with Joe Biden.

  4. RAML says:

    you are not your

    I am behind times, RAML. I still vividly remember Eisenhower and ’57 Chevy’s. And life before PBS. And before color TV. And before hippies.
