Mike De Heus urges readers to visit the site of National Endowment for the Arts hover over Resources, click Health Insurance and check out the following statement: “Health care reform is a critical issue for the arts community.

What is to be said? Andrew Klavan reflects on “The art of corruption.” Klavan observes that the NEA has deeply betrayed its mission, and that this betrayal is precisely what the Obama administration intended.
UPDATE: John Nolte grabs screen shots of the relevant links and posts additional background information.
