Obama Administration Gives $445 Million to Public Broadcasting After Shutdown, Kids With Cancer Can Still Suck It

Because nothing quite demonstrates that Democrats have their priorities in order than giving millions to Sesame Street, while telling kids with cancer to fend for themselves during the shutdown.

Via CNS News:

On the first day of the “shutdown” of the federal government, when members of the U.S. Senate were going to the well of their house to point out that the shutdown would prevent the National Institutes of Health from starting clinical trials for cancer patients and others facing possibly terminal illnesses, the administration was giving $445,000,000 to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, according to the Daily Treasury Statement.

That means PBS NewsHour, National Public Radio and Sesame Street got a taxpayer subsidy during the shutdown, but not would-be cancer patients at the NIH.

Of course, it was just earlier in the week when Harry Reid was pressed on voting for a bill that would fund the NIH and “help one child who has cancer”, in which he responded, “Why would we want to do that?”
