Submission + - Democrats blocking permenant ban on Net Tax-> 1

slashkossucks writes: Net neutrality? How about the ban on taxing internet access? For 10 years now, Americans have enjoyed tax free access to the internet. None of the annoying fees and surcharges that are all-too-familiar with telephone bills are allowed. However, this ban is about to expire, and the consumer is the one who will pay the price if it does. Senator McCain and other Republicans would like to re-instate the ban, making it permanent. But Democrats are blocking this effort. Shame on them. And shame on Slashdot for covering it up.
