House Blocks Digital TV Postponement
It's not to often that I agree with republicans on a subject, but today I do. As most of us know, February 12th is the day that analog TV signals will be shut off, forcing everyone over to digital. The Obama administration attempted to push through a postponement, giving till June for the switch over. But when the bill reached the House of Representatives, it didn't get the 2/3rds vote to pass, which means, move on to real policy and subjects. If some poor-assed person, hasn't forked up the 40 bucks needed to get a converter box, then screw them. It's just TV, some people actually choose not to have a TV. That's right, they read, watch movies, or do something besides sit inside the house staring at a box of images.
