    The FCC ( Federal Communications Commission ) is about to take more of your hard earned tax dollars, and they'll do with an increase charge ( TAX ) on your phone bill and on your internet access bill.

    (1) -- An additional $1.5 Billion per years.
    (2) -- Rates have jumped under this administration 60%, from 9.5% to 16.1%, and could go as high as 20.3% next year.
    (3) -- One school over-ordered and overpaid for goods and services, storing about $4.5 million in unused equipment in warehouses.
    (4) The e-rate fund will increase by 62%, and raise your phone and internet bills by at least 16%.

    And your money just keeps going and going and going and going.
