Obama wants to tack on $5-a-year phone tax to fund high-speed Internet in schools - critics blast 'end run' of Congress and 'endless expansion of program at the expense of rate payers'

WASHINGTON — That’s one way to “cell” a fee hike.

Unwilling to ask Congress for extra funds to pay for high-speed Internet connections in schools, President Obama is instead looking to tack yet another charge on cellphones through the Federal Communications Commission.

The new program, called ConnectED, would expand an existing school-wiring effort and cost each cellphone user about $5 a year, said White House officials.

In New York City, the ubiquitous mobile devices already carry 10 separate city, state and federal fees and charges — and that doesn’t include sales taxes.

Obama is relying on the fee hike to avoid dealing with a Congress that White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest yesterday described as “dysfunctional.”
Live Free or Die
The MAIN “dysfunctional” part is in the White House itself..... This man has NO intention of letting the "little" man get even with his bills and life much less get ahead. The more "slaves" this man has the better he feels about his own conception of superiority.....
You want to take my guns away ???? SCREW YOU ............
Obviously, not counting Obamaphone users......
