Comment Re:Universal Service Fund (Score 1) 625

Well, I have cable Internet, and I also live in a somewhat rural area. I *do* live in the village limits, making me a bit of a city dweller. My concern about this TAX is that it is going to end up like my phone bill - I have two lines (run a home office for my business). I pay for 3. My two lines are around $60. My taxes on these lines are $30. I pay $91+ - and that is before I pick up the phone to make a call. I question why the USF cannot be funded through my $30 and the $30 every other poor sap that uses a phone. The addition of another tax makes me question where the rest of this money is going.
