Congress does something right!

Extending the Internet Tax ban was the right thing to do! It is astonishing because Congress can't seem to do anything right recently.

"With Congress at an 11 percent approval rating, the lowest in history....."

But here you go!

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate has approved legislation extending a moratorium on state Internet access taxes for seven years.

With only days left before the Internet tax ban was set to expire, the Senate reached a compromise between lawmakers who proposed a shorter extension and those who insisted it should be made permanent.

"By keeping the Internet tax-free and affordable, Congress can encourage Internet use for distance learning, telemedicine, commerce and other important services," Sen. Ted Stevens, of Alaska, said in a statement on Thursday night."

Now if they can just lower business taxes and reduce bureaucratic red tape... I can dream can't I ?
