These people literally had YEARS advance notice (not including the extra 5 month extension) of what was coming. Some people think the government should provide EVERYTHING for them. In a country where way too many people have no medical insurance and, believe it or not, there are STILL some actually starving, only a government made up of idiots would spend billions of dollars to fund digital tuner boxes
If they had to do something so stupid, they should have sent it out for bid (for American companies ONLY) and distributed the boxes themselves....to the VERY needy.
Gee, maybe we should blow a few billion more and have another "cash for clunkers", that really got the economy moving.
Some people think that whatever the government gives out is a free ride, but if you're an American taxpayer, in the end, you're paying for all this nonsense. That's not correct, what I meant to say was that you're paying some of the interest the government owes, because the principal is never reduced, it just keeps growing. I really feel bad for the next generation and can't imagine how they're going to pay the tab.
