    and if you don’t want television, you have to buy it anyway or you will be fined an amount equal to comcast premium.

    john roberts says it isn’t a fine, it is a tax, so don’t worry. it’s ok.

    Is this a bigger problem than anything else Congress has to deal with? The American people are clamoring to restore sanity to the price structure of television programming distribution rights?? . . . Or is there any remote chance that Ms. Eshoo [gesundheit] has a friend, relative, or generous donor in that business?

    Will Anna eschew conflicts of interest?

    @2, I honestly think most of it is derived of boredom and the need to look like they’re *doing something* so when it’s re-election time they can be like, “I did this!” And they don’t think of it on their own. Some lobbyist comes blathering up whiny vomit, and the politician is like, “Hey yea, I can get behind this. This is pretty safe, compared to some of the other stuff that’d dangerous to take a stand on.”
