When pressed for specific cuts in spending during the presidential debate, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney mentioned only Obamacare and PBS. Certainly Obamacare is significant to address. However, if PBS is the only other example he could present, either he doesn’t, as Joe Biden said, understand arithmetic, or he is keeping secret his true plans.The total budget is $3.1 trillion. The budget for PBS is $445 million. This amount is significant to an individual, but the percent of the total budget is infinitesimal. In other words, the total budget is $8,380 per person while PBS is only $1.41 per person. The defense budget is $525 billion or $1,669 per person. Reducing it by $1.41 per person would certainly not affect our security.
