FCC eyes tax on Internet service
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.

Numerous companies, including AT&T, Sprint and even Google have expressed support for the idea.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

"It's NOT a tax"

From the source:

snip
The FCC could run into legal problems with the Internet Tax Freedom Act, a 1998 law that bans the government from taxing Internet access. But the FCC has long argued that Universal Service is a fee that the providers choose to pass on to consumers and not a tax.

Re: FCC eyes tax on Internet service
Geesh...why am I not surprised.

The Gubbmemt is scrambling for any source of revenue to continue feeding and growing the monstrous abomination called "bureaucracy"...All those gov workers sitting at a desk and pulling six figures to decide if they need this $400.00 shovel or that one.

It's like in local municipalities. The cops don't patrol the hoods and ghettos anymore, they patrol the middle and upper class neighborhoods. They know they can write more tickets and pull in the revenue they need to pay their own salaries.

Some will say "but they are protecting your assetts"...right...with a citation book.

The abomination is unsustainable and they know it...so they keep looking for more and more ways to make average people carry the burden of their costs.

Gov workers...top to bottom...should not make more than 50-60 k a year. I don't care what you do. Not good enough? Get a real job then. Gov workers should be there to serve, not profit.

Re: FCC eyes tax on Internet service
The only tax I would agree with is a similar one to the blank media tax (private copying levy) if they stop fighting piracy.

The construction of high-speed Internet networks to the estimated 19 million Americans who currently lack access should be dealt with by local service providers.

If service providers are able to earn back their investment and make a profit, they will construct it. If that is not the case and the government will do it instead because there is no money to be made, it is money down the drain, taxpayers money.
