    You hear him at the end of nearly every NPR broadcast.

    The host wraps up the news. And then on comes the mystery voice, reading the underwriting credits. The voice utters authoritarian decrees, postulating that "Silk is soy" or asserting that "ADM" is "supermarket to the world."

    And then there's the payoff line, as the steady elocution of the mystery voice waxes ever so slightly on a solitary word.

    "This is NPR. National Public Radio."

    If Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) gets his way in the House of Representatives today, the mystery voice may have to alter his patter.

    "I want NPR to stand for National Private Radio," says Lamborn. "They can and should stand on their own two feet."

    House votes to cut off federal funds for NPR
    Updated: Mar 17, 2011 WASHINGTON - The House on Thursday voted to end federal funding to National Public Radio. Republican supporters said it made good fiscal sense, and Democratic opponents called it an ideological attack that would deprive local stations of access to programs such as "Car Talk" and "All Things Considered."
