Defend NPR, PBS, And Planned Parenthood!

A Tea Party Republican bill to defund NPR. And PBS. And Planned Parenthood?

Tell Congress: Defend NPR, PBS and Planned Parenthood!You got it, or at least you will get it if these jokers aren't stopped.

And as if that's not enough, why not throw in Americorps and Obama's healthcare law? Let's also slash funding for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security while we're at it.

The nightmare labor, health and education bill introduced by Republicans in the House this week sounds like something out of the Tea Party's wildest dreams. But since Tea Party Republicans control the House, their wildest dreams could be about to come true.

Tea Party Republicans have tried to destroy these popular programs again and again. And they have been stopped every time. But never have they put so much vitriol all in one bill.

In the best case scenario, this bill is just another arrogant, time-wasting exercise by Tea Party extremists who are too obsessed with their radical partisan agenda to make any good faith effort to constructively address the many problems facing our country.

But in the worst case, Republicans will unify around this bill as their starting point in budget negotiations to exact painful compromises from Democrats, something we've seen too often in the past.

The petition reads:

"Don't defund NPR, PBS, Planned Parenthood and AmeriCorps! Reject the GOP's extreme labor, health and education spending bill."
