Your Internet Fees Will Now Go Up Thanks to Obama

Obama is going to make you pay more for the Internet. Isn’t he wonderful?

You’ll remember that liberals wanted Obama to take over the Internet so that it would be “fair” to everyone. Now his meddling is going to cost us even more just to access the internet.

Rcently adopted net neutrality regulations soon could make your monthly Internet bill more complicated — and potentially more expensive.

Every month, consumers pay a small fee on their phone bills for a federal program that uses the money — a total of $8.8 billion raised nationwide last year — to provide affordable access to telecommunications services in rural areas, underserved inner cities and schools.

Now the fee could start appearing on broadband bills too, in a major expansion of the nearly two-decade-old Universal Service Fund program.

It’s not clear yet, however, if most consumers would end up paying more in total USF fees than they do now.

In approving the tough rules for online traffic in February, the Federal Communications Commission put broadband in the same regulatory category as phone service, opening the door for the charges.

Obama did not care a whit about your freedom of access. He just wanted to steal more money from you.
