SEPP: Making the Internet more expensive for consumers

Congress has long been derided as a body crippled by score-settling, grandstanding and ideological skirmishing. Washington insiders may disagree with this assessment of how dysfunctional our nation’s capital has become, but to taxpayers the evidence is clear. Lawmakers cannot get together to pass an important piece of legislation that protects a vital service and actually enjoys widespread support among members of both major parties.

The legislation is known as the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act, and it would reauthorize an existing federal law that prohibits state and local governments from imposing hefty taxes on monthly subscriptions for Internet service.

I can pull the plug, the same as I did to cable TV.
