Congressman Doug Lamborn Proposes Legislation Defunding Corporation for Public Broadcasting

By ALG News –

Congressman Doug Lamborn has proposed legislation that would cease taxpayer funding for public broadcasting. Lamborn is proposing a free market approach. If there is a demand for public broadcasting, then those that want it, will find a way to fund it–privately.

Currently, taxpayers spend $420 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. This is a luxury, not a need. Lamborn correctly points out that with soaring deficits, funding programs like this is unnecessary.
