Welfare for AT&T

Posted By on Thu, Mar 3, 2011 at 6:07 AM

John Brummett gets into the fine print of legislation speeding to approval that boils down to a multi-million-dollar subsidy for AT&T (through a tax on phone service), not to mention some potential work for the utility contractor/citizen legislator who's sponsoring it.

This, friends, is how business gets done at the Capitol. While the Tea Party rages about $25,000 in increased spending at an office that provides technical assistance to city and county government, they are whooping through millions to line the pockets of one of the richest corporations in America.

I want my country back.
