Brendan Sasso, Senators blast House spectrum bill, The Hill, January 9, 2012

Quote

“House Republicans argue the government should not pay to reclaim airwaves that it will then give away for free.”

 Comment

This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. When did the broadcasters pay the government for their spectrum? The Republicans (and Democrats) are proposing to give the broadcasters tens of billions of dollars worth of spectrum rights plus revenue for spectrum that is owned by the public and that broadcasters never paid a nickle to the public for, except for what turned out to be bogus “public interest obligations.”
