Big Bird is a success we supported them long enough. Sesame Street makes millions of dollars, now it is time for them to pay their fair share. When they make so much money off that program they should be ashamed to ask tax payers to fund them especially while our country is in such a financial mess. It is time for Big bird to get off governments apron strings. And thank taxpayers for helping them make it to the top. They could buy PBS if they wanted.
