Just another lie ...

... perpetuated by the cable companies in order to screw their subscribers out of their hard-earned cash. The only thing that will solve this continuing problem is government regulation. Government regulation of the cabletv/phone/internet/wireless companies CAN"T be as bad as the screwing subscribers are getting now.

I will be perfectly happy if the budget cuts specified in the Budget Control Act go into effect. 3 cheers for the sequester. Take the money from the drunken federal spenders.

I've found that those who believe government control/intervention can't possibly make things worse in a particular situation are usually proven wrong. After all, inefficiency and laziness are hardly choice weapons to use in a battle against ruthlessness and greed.

IF you want to participate in modern society, uh yea... This is like saying Oh so you're being forced to pay for rent or a mortgage. Good luck with that argument really...

It wouldn't be EXCEPT said regulation WOULD BE CONTROLLED BY THE INDUSTRY.

That's where the crap has to end. Regulators need to regulate and lobbyists need to be removed.

I'm not arguing anything. I'm simply taking issue with the use of "screwing". That implies these 'poor consumers' don't know whats happening to them or that they aren't receiving the services they pay for.
