    And ALL the Democrats voted against it.

    what do they care, it's not their money.

    I'm sure they will bring it up again after Jan 1.

    Why the hell are taxpayer dollars used to fund ANY news station???

    Only on idiotic dimocrat would be happy that they blocked an attempt to cut spending.

    Damn you truly are dumb as dirt.

    Never click on links to the HuffPuff, is my advice. All that does is increase their hit rate - and that helps them sell advertising space. I do nothing that helps propagandist sites like the HuffPuff.

    I'm sure that the left will be delighted that they can force taxpayers to fund their crap radio. Any decent station should be able to stand on its own feet, without needing to take money from poor taxpayers.

    A consequence of the '08 election.

    Next time it's brought up the outcome will be a consequence of the '10 election.

    Or, perhaps Paul Ryan will defund it when he writes the new budget?

    Who really cares?

    NPR is a rightwing whipping boy responsible for all our nations problems. If it were publically funded FoxNews they would support it
