Big Bird Must Pay For Himself. Tax Cuts? Not So Much.

Today's episode is brought to you by the letter M. M stands for McDonalds.

That's the vision Mitt Romney has for maintaining Sesame Street after he guts the funding for public broadcasting.

At a campaign stop in Iowa Wednesday, Mitt Romney reiterated his promise to cut the National Endowment for the Arts as well as PBS funding and other programs as part of his plan to balance the budget.

“No, we’re not going to kill Big Bird,” Romney, who said he personally “love[s]” PBS, told the town hall at a diner in Clinton, IA. “But Big Bird is going to have to have advertisements.”

Serious question -- if Big Bird must pay for himself through advertisements, shouldn't tax cuts also have to pay for themselves through a return on investment?

So far, 10 years of the Bush Tax Cuts have failed to do so. In fact the Bush Tax Cuts are single largest contributor to the national deficit. Why would the Romney Tax Cuts be any different? Why does Mitt Romney love huge deficits?
