    Congress to tax net connections.

    Congress proposes tax on all Net, data connections

    There's no way that a bill like that would pass.

    Keep in mind that the committee that made the proposal is made up of three Republicans AND three Democrats (and between Hatch and Rockefeller, that's a lot of influence on each side).

    Or six Republicrats. I guess it depends who's counting.
