    So much for that bald-faced lie that nobody whose income is below $250,000 will have their taxes increased.

    Explains why the gov't is throwing tens of millions of dollars in stimulus funds/grants into broadband.

    Of course you didn't mention that it would replace the local and state taxes that are now applied:

    From your own article:

    Just like when the highway system was nationalized. And we all know how badly that turned out, right?

    It was just horrible for business, wasn't it?

    That Ike was just a terrible president, wasn't he?

    The highway system hasn't worked out as great as you seem to think it has. Look at the gridlock in any major metro area during rush hour.

    Considering how many states' finances are tenuous at best (and soon to get worse with the unfunded mandates of ObamaCare), seizing tax receipts from them is just another ploy to expand Federal Government at the expense of Everything Else.
