Sounds just like the justifications for Obamacare -- it will benefit us in the long run. How about we pick and choose from what private businesses offer us and leave the government out of it.
I am sure u liked it when Congress passed a law that made cell phone companies let you keep your phone number when u changed plans? Sure u did, it is about having freedom of choice. Al la carte cable is no different. To compare it to Obamacare is just silly.
