In yet another example of Paul Ryan being unable to control House Republicans, the Republican Study Committee is trying to cut off federal support for the Kennedy Center . . . of which Speaker Ryan is a trustee. #awkward
The John F. Kennedy Center, located along the Potomac River waterfront in Washington, D.C., first opened in 1971. According to its website, the Kennedy Center hosts “an unmatched variety of theater and musicals, dance and ballet, orchestral, chamber, jazz, popular, world, and folk music, and multimedia performances for all ages.” . . . It is inappropriate for the federal government to subsidize a performing arts center in one of the wealthiest areas in the country.
