Broadband Tax to Fill USF Fund

Ars Technica has an article about the proposal being floated in Washington to put a 10% tax on broadband services to pay into the USF fund.  This wouldn't be such a bad idea except for the gross mis-management and outright thievery going on with monies already flowing into USF from the phone bills of all Americans.  The Center for Public Integrity has an article from January, 2003 about the rampant fraud and waste in the USF operations.

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not Eureka! (I found it!) but rather, 'hmm.... that's funny...'- Isaac Asimov
