  • A poll shows Americans think PBS is second most important use of public funds, after national defense 파괴의군주 다운로드.

They also say PBS cost each taxpayer $1.35/year, and for every federal dollar they raise another $6 from private sources. Could that be why Mitt thinks they can do without public funds 다운로드?
