    “The mean-spirited bill, H.R. 1 … eliminates the National Endowment of the Humanities, National Endowment of the Arts,” said Senator Reid. “These programs create jobs. The National Endowment of the Humanities is the reason we have in northern Nevada every January a cowboy poetry festival. Had that program not been around, the tens of thousands of people who come there every year would not exist.”

    The government has no business funding such things as festivals. If someone wants to have a festival let them raise the money from the participants. This is a ridiculous waste of taxpayer dollars. Sheeeez.
