Re: New law only guarantees voters get an OK BEFORE $ spent

But, don't those '90 year old Grandparents' already pay for things they don't use? For example, if they have copper phone service, they are subsidizing:
1. The costs of upgrading lines to allow higher DSL speeds or services similar to U-Verse
2. People who use the phone more than they do

If they have cable, they subsidize:
1. The costs of upgrading the network to allow more channels/higher internet speeds
2. People who use the service more than they do

Basically, if you pay any taxes, or pay for any service, you are indirectly paying for things that you don't/won't use.
