Looks like the internet phone companies may not be that cheap for that much longer. Currently congress is trying to push a tax through that interent phone companies must charge appropriate federal, FCC, and 911 charges to customers.

How true Troy.

Chief Justice John Marshall in 1819 wrote that "The power to tax involves the power to destroy."

It seems this is the work of the big phone company lobbying groups to deal with competitors.
