Mr. President: Please Stop Using Tax Payer Money to Support Rush

To be delivered to President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Stop the Public Service Announcements mentioning United States departments from airing on the Rush Limbaugh Show. These announcements circulate courtesy of the Ad Council but imply American citizens' support of hate speech.
There are currently 30,211 signatures. NEW goal - We need 40,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The United States Government is spending our tax dollars to support Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh’s Show continues while he collects welfare.
Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move program is heard on the Rush Limbaugh Show. United States Departments airing Public Service Announcements (PSAs) include Department of Energy, United States Forest Service (as in Smokey Bear), Housing and Urban Development.
The Ad Council distributes many of these PSAs claiming, “The airing of Ad Council PSAs on media programs does not imply support of that program or its spokesperson’s ideologies.”
As taxpayers, We The People do not want our name used to fill Rush Limbaugh's dead air.
