Wow, people oppose having choices? Funny thing, the same people that oppose this also oppose corporations making profits ... funny, but this idea of McCain actually prevents them from making you pay for something you don't want just to get something you do want, and people oppose this idea? Federalists, the whole lot of you.

The corporate crooks are at it again, if such a law was ever passed (extremely unlikely) a whole lot of crap that very few people are interested in on cable and satellite TV would end.

It is like covering every medical need, we can have it but we got to pay for it. The cable channels are dying anyway due to Netflix, and other choices. Today, we have the choice of 300 channels of which we watch five.

Why do you partisans always have to bring other issues up when talking about an unrelated one?

They just force me to pay for a lot of crap that I don't care for, just to watch a few channels I like, so they can make more profit. With your line of contorted logic, you must be one of them.

how does someone force you to pay for TV? didn't you, of your own volition, call up the cable company and ask them if you could give them your money?

seems more like they aren't crooks, but they are people who can see a sucker coming from a mile away...

When the cable and satellite service does die off, and other a al carte services take over, that won't bother me a bit. I already get a lot of my favorite stuff for free on the internet.

Once the NFL goes on-line streaming of every game, even if you have to pay-per-game, cable will done.

Oh yes, because having an 'a la cart' cable selection is so freaking important.

Let's see here,

We are in endless and winless wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libyia, Yemen, Pakistan, and soon to be Iran and Syria.

We have mountains of debt to private banks that "WE" the people did not approve of.

We have American soldiers being ordered to their deaths in foreign lands (by guys like McLame).

Our government also gives out billions to foreign lands in under the umbrella of "Foreign Aid".

Yeah, cable TV is so freaking important right now.

Why do you people in AZ keep electing this guy? Like those in SC, where are your freaking standards?
