PBS set to reveal 'stealth campaign' to cut healthcare, education

RAW STORY
Published: Wednesday September 20, 2006


PBS newsmagazine NOW this week plans to target what producers are calling, "a stealth campaign for deep cuts in social services," RAW STORY has learned.

The program is to examine ballot initiatives across the nation that it will characterize as deceptively-titled attempts to slash funding in health care and education. "Initiatives with titles like 'Taxpayers' Bill of Rights' and 'SOS - Stop Over Spending'" will be the focus of the segment.

The program is also set to assert that one wealthy New Yorker is secretly helping to orchestrate the push by providing major funding for the nationwide initiatives. Questionable legal and campaign tactics will also be highlighted

1. Wait...
I thought PBS/NPR had been co-opted by the Rove. I'm so confused.

3. This is no surprise.
Tax cuts mean programs cuts, the greedy hate the needy, the greedy hate Amerika.

As our Ward Leader, Louis Russo, always said, "Do not be misled." He said it every election on every ballot issue. We miss you, Louis!

5. Hence we see the real motive behind the Oil Wars
Bankrupt congress so it can't fund (even existing) social programs so they will have to be provided by faith-based organizations (for which funding will magically appear).
