Gov. Paul LePage is right. Back when there was just a handful of channels, I could see a need for taxpayers to support Maine Public Broadcasting Network, especially for children’s programming. Today, with hundreds of channels via satellite and cable television, it’s time to end the taxpayer support, especially in these difficult times.

I’m glad LePage has the courage to make these important choices needed to bring some fiscal sanity back to this state. I wish the political leaders in Washington had the same courage as Gov. LePage.
