Republicans target Big Bird to pay for Katrina recovery
Scripps Howard News Service, 10/18/2005
"If an influential group of House Republicans gets its way, Big Bird will have to pay his own way to Sesame Street, and Masterpiece Theater will begin searching for product placement opportunities - all to fund the Hurricane Katrina recovery. The Republican Study Committee, a conservative group within the House GOP caucus, has launched Operation Offset to cut spending by $102.1 billion in this year's budget to help pay for rebuilding New Orleans and other devastated environs. Among the targets in the group's bull's-eye: The National Endowment for the Arts and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."
