Perhaps Sen. Bernard Sanders should adapt a line from a former New York gubernatorial candidate and declare he thinks the cost of cable television is too damn high.
Four senators led by Sanders, the independent from Vermont seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, want the Federal Communications Commission to probe high prices for satellite and cable TV services, as well as broadband Internet.
“We need healthy competition to foster innovation and ensure fair prices for consumers. At the very least, Americans should be able to understand the prices of the product they are buying and what their neighbors are paying for the same service,” they wrote in a letter.
