You pay your tax dollars to the Washington, which then gives some of them to the FCC so that it can dream up new ways to take more of your tax dollars. The latest bit of unconstitutional moonbattery:
The Federal Communications Commission is eyeing a proposal to tax broadband Internet service.
The move would funnel money to the Connect America Fund, a subsidy the agency created last year to expand Internet access.
The FCC issued a request for comments on the proposal in April. Dozens of companies and trade associations have weighed in, but the issue has largely flown under the public’s radar.
Now, as everybody who ever took Econ 101 knows, if price goes up, demand goes down. So the FCC is going to tax broadband — reducing demand — in order to expand supply to people who already can’t afford it.
Forget for a moment that the FCC created out of thin air a sub-agency to justify a tax it has no constitutional power to create and no authority to collect…
Actually, I take that last part back, as I have no ability to forget all of that for even one moment.
This whole thing is an assault on reason and on the law, but in DC, it’s what passes for brains.
