Mitt Rmoney told Fortune magazine that he plans to cut millions of government spending by turning Medicare over to the states, squashing Obama's health care law, and "ending subsidies for Amtrak, the National Endowments for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities and PBS." BUT! He wouldn't feel awesome about it.
"Some of these things, like those endowment efforts and PBS, I very much appreciate and like what they do in many cases, but I just think they have to stand on their own rather than receiving money borrowed from other countries, as our government does on their behalf," Romney said.
Mitt Rmoney is an entitled rich white prick who doesn't know how things work. Perhaps if we magically transported many of the rich people from the 17th century to now, we would have a group of rich folk that actually appreciate and see the necessity for the arts by providing patronage. But we don't live then, we live now, when rich industrialists have made it virtually impossible for public-serving entitles like PBS to exist without a lot of help. And if PBS or any of these other things went away? Rmoney wouldn't bat an eye—regardless of what he says—he would sleep very well in his complete disregard for how much damage he would do to the rest of us. I DON'T LIKE HIM.
