The article presents the author's opinion on the working of the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). He informs that recently the association got $50 million from the $787 billion stimulus package announced by president Barack Obama. But NEA was not happy with the announcement. Instead it complained about it's poor economic condition and boasted of it's capacity for economic activity. He claims that NEA has become a superfluous organization that belies U.S.'s pluralism and democracy.
