Leader Cantor Statement on Taxpayer Funding for National Public Radio

Posted on

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding taxpayer funding for National Public Radio (NPR) after CEO Vivian Schiller resigned:

“Our concern is not about any one person at NPR, rather it’s about millions of taxpayers. NPR has admitted that they don't need taxpayer subsidies to thrive, and at a time when the government is borrowing 40 cents of every dollar that it spends, we certainly agree with them.”
