    Comcast-TWC merger worries consumers
    Feb 14,`14 -- Cable subscribers don't give Comcast and Time Warner Cable good grades when it comes to customer satisfaction. So after Comcast announced its $45 billion purchase of Time Warner Cable Thursday, it didn't take long for consumers to start venting their frustrations over high prices, spotty service and fears of a monopoly.

    People who tout the wonderfulness of 'free markets' and the benefits of 'competition' in making their cases for deregulation need to understand that the corporations themselves despise competition,

    and when left to their own free-from-regulation devices will do everything in their power to reduce or eliminate competition.

    Most cable companies are government protected monopolies. Comcast has a monopoly in almost every city where it operates. The way they eliminate competition is to have the local government make it illegal. The numskulls who approve these arrangements are all pro-regulation morons like you.

    That doesn't help your argument against free enterprise much, now does it?

    Oh liberals are all about protecting the little man from big business......until they make $$$$ off the deal.

    COMCAST is a liberal owned company.

    Obama and his goons protect their friends.
