VOTE: H 1.10 - Cultural Stimulation Bill

Recommended Posts

                                                                                                            Cultural Stimulation Bill

                                                                                                      By Mr. Tyson NY -3

                                                       To help establish American Exceptionalism and to prevent the condescension and ridicule of nations that think of us as uncultured, uncivilized, and undeserving, the United States will add a recurring stimulus to the entertainment industry in the form of $600,000 a year. Thus we will be able to produce quality literature, plays, music, and poetry just like all the other civilized nations in the world, and will be shown the respect that this grand experiment of a nation truly deserves.

Mr. Speaker,

I object to the motion for unanimous consent.

While the US Constitution does grant this body the power to promote useful arts, I'm not sure that promotion of entertainment would be included in a proper reading of the law.  I also do not believe it is appropriate to grant this large sum of monies to such an endeavor while this body is still addressing the vital issue of federal debts and potentially state debts.  Perhaps in several years time this measure would be more financially appropriate, but I do not think it wise to favor this at this time.

I yield.
