Senators back new broadband taxes

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON--New broadband taxes may be on the horizon, if an influential senator and his like-minded colleagues get their way.

At a Tuesday hearing convened by the Senate Commerce Committee, several senators from largely rural states called for expansion of the Universal Service Fund (USF), a multibillion-dollar pool of money that's currently used to subsidize telecommunications services in rural and other high-cost areas, schools and libraries.

This is turning very ugly. Between the toll news and now this. I blame people's complacency on allowing the government's smoking tax. I said time and time again they are not going to stop with just that. Smokers were just the experiment. I hope all this tax stuff and increased fees comes to bite everybody you know where.

Oh it will. When you raise taxes, things cost more, and when things cost more, customers will have to pick between either their cell phones, or broad band, ect... when you can't afford both, it's either one thing or another, then there's decline in purchasing power, which brings around the decline in jobs, which brings around un-employment, higher wellfare, medicare, food stamp benefits payouts, which in turn will drain the tax revenues, and the liberals (or should I say socialists) will want to increase taxes again.

It's the next Europe. And it will continue down this road till it gets so bad that you will fight to provide for YOUR family rather than providing for everyone elses. That's when it's either a massive depression or inflation, high crime, uprisings, getting rid of stupid socialistic politicians and their following. Then, once all of them are put down and out of office, it will slowly reverse itself and the country will start re-building. MAYBE. Rome couldn't pull out of it. Germany tried pulling out of it by starting WWII, Europe went through those phases for hundreds of years, and is going through it right now. Russia was a perfect example. What can I say but that it's US's time.
