Free Internets! : Obama Appointee Says Price Hikes by Broadband Providers 'Raise A Red Flag' for the FCC

I griped about this on the show last week, but forgot to blog the insanity.

(CNSNews.com) - Rich or poor, disabled or healthy, young or old – the Obama administration says every American should have access to high-speed Internet in their own homes, even if it costs American taxpayers billions of dollars to accomplish that goal.

Universal broadband access is a key element of the Federal Communications Commissions' national broadband plan, which will be delivered to President Obama and the Congress on March 16.

On Wednesday, FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, an Obama appointee, frowned on recent price hikes by broadband providers, calling it an “ominous” sign at a time when the government hopes to give all Americans access to high-speed Internet in their homes.

“This is an issue we must examine closely going forward," Clyburn said in a statement posted on the FCC Web site. She noted that 36 percent of people who do not have Internet service at home cite cost as a main reason.

They are so completely out of their minds. We're broke, crazy people! There are lots of things people don't have that they cite "cost as a reason" for. Enough.
