VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Remember when all you needed to watch network TV was a television set, and maybe a set of rabbit-ear antennas for better reception? We now have hundreds of channels to choose from, and we pay a high price for that, but network television should still be free."
It still is. I get 3X more channels w/HDTV radio signals than I did with analog signals. All this with a 12 year old UHF/VHF antenna just like the old days.
Writer is either trying to manipulate the facts (bad journalism at best) or is a lazy researcher. Boooo!
they can hike the taxes , as long as they spend it wisely ? not on some of the stupid sh1t they do !

20 THINGS that should be free ? and the american TAX PAYER didnt make the list ? Humm?
I think that at one time we were ?
Its not the politicians or the lawyers, it the citizens mentalities. It’s the citizens who elect these politicians and hire the lawyers (but we do need good lawyers for legitimate things). More and more people are convinced that things should be given to them just because they exist. The reason America was great in the first place was because people worked hard and had morals, and dare I say, a healthy reverence for the Almighty…
In America we are guaranteed the certain freedoms, and these are designed to shore us up so we can work hard to become the best we can be and to buy our own stuff and willingly help others.
Wi-fi cost up to $13 a night in casino hotels. I guess they figure if you can afford to stay and play you can afford to pay for wi-fi.
Seriously? Most people who stay at hotels in resort locations or big cities are either on vacation or at a conference...I might at most use the internet for 30 minutes a day with minimal bandwidth useage (since I have better things to do when on vacation or at a professional conference) and they dare to offer me the "great deal" of $10 per day???
I have traveled some...and I want all Americans to know that the United States is the best place to live on this earth. Believe me, there is no place like home.....USA is home.
Basic water should be free....he water that runs into our homes. There should be a maximum personal use...if you go over that you pay for the overage.
There are 315 million people in America, (2011 census)
Healthcare in this country cost 2.6 Trillion in 2010 (Kaiseredu.org)
Divide 2.6 trillion by 315 million comes out to 825.39 cost per person for healthcare in the US.
So- Why would it cost me 850 per month for a health insurance policy ( family plan- 3 people) with a 6000 deductible?
Single payer system should not cost the American public more than 1600 per year per person, current system would cost me more than 16,000 per year before anything was covered. A difference of $10,000 per year- only for the lesser amount I would actually get health care.
Maybe Americans need to set up their own single payer system, where every person can contribute a 1% of the group costs- who can we get to organize and run it?
