Prepare to be taxed for your internet service
Posted by: McQ on Friday, September 28, 2007

And you can thank the Democratic Congress for it:
Democrats in the U.S. Congress failed on Thursday to protect Internet users from higher taxes.

The Senate Commerce committee, chaired by Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), mysteriously killed a vote on an Internet tax bill that was supposed to take place at 2:30 p.m. ET. With a laugh but no explanation, Inouye simply told the hearing room it wasn't going to happen.
Because, you know, its tax revenue and Democrats have never met a tax they didn't like. The temporary federal moratorium on Internet access taxes expires on November 1st.

By the way, they didn't "fail" to protect Internet users from higher taxes, they refused to protect them.

As CNET News points out:
Americans soon are likely to be paying more to local governments for the privilege of buying DSL and cable modem service. (These are some of the same local governments that have adopted as their motto: "If it exists, tax it. And then tax it some more.")
Naturally I believe that the motto actually originated with the Democratic party and local governments have simply adopted it as a matter of course.
