The only individuals who would even be remotely suprised that Comcast is endorsing the President's health care agenda are those who still cling to the notion that Big Businesses are opposed to government regulation.
Ginormous companies such as Comcast, flush with cash & a fleet of attorneys, can easily deal with regulations that will cripple small business & individuals trying to balance their budgets.
To Comcast, it's a small price to pay if it gives them a smoother road to FCC approval of their recent purchase of NBC Universal.
Most people think that more government regulation is required to reign in powerful corporations. However, the dirty secret is, those same regulations only serve to create even more powerful monopolies by weeding out their competition.
Small companies shell out a fortune just maintaining compliance with various local, state & federal regulations & tax laws - even before they pay for their routine operating expenses. Big Business will gladly play the bogey man if it dupes the government into weeding out their competition for them.
The best way to ensure protection of the consumer is to limit government power which in turn frees up individuals & small businesses to compete on a level playing field.
Want more & better choices for health care, entertainment, energy, you name it. Clear out government interference & competition will give us the best value for our dollar.
