The Smithsonian Has a Billion Dollars, So Why Is It Closed?


All the Smithsonian Museums are closed due to the government shutdown… What a fraud. We should call on everyone to stop donating to the Smithsonian.

Yes, it gets a substantial amount of funding from the federal government.

But it also got nearly $150 million last year from other sources and had a surplus last year of not much less than that.

In addition, it has an endowment of nearly a billion dollars.

I guess the Smithsonian management couldn’t figure out a way to stay open a few days.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
