We do get letters and this one affects YOUR daily life

You DO have a cell phone don't you? Well then come on along and get learned on an important issue facing our fair state.

Are you for a more open market when it comes to consumer choice in your telecom? The Market Competition and Consumer Choice Act is being readied for a vote (SB-2664). Americans for Tax Reform thinks that the AARP and other groups aren't necessarily playing fair in making wild claims about competition and basic phone services.

Now, Johnny's not one to quickly jump to the side of ATR, he has his differences with their policies BUT in this case they're right. The Federal Government has rules and laws in place to stop companies from overreaching when it comes to such matters. You'll innovate and bring business to the Garden State if you encourage new investment in telecom. Hey, everything wired is booming right now (Though Johnny does think we're sitting on another tech bubble but that's a discussion for another day) and that's where the jobs are gonna come from these days.

If you'd like more information on this please DO click the link to read more on it. If you disagree Johnny has always said this blog is about you the reader so if you have an alternate point of view, let's hear it.

First time commenter but THANK YOU for throwing out the fact that jobs/the economy are a part of the discussion on the telecommunications act, and not just big bad companies cutting off phone service at will with no repercussions. Thanks for the post!

i am going to echo what the other commenter said. it's of the utmost importance that competition is allowed in order for our state to thrive in the 21st century. this is about job creation and about a healthy economy.
