Blasts 'Gore tax'



Walter Williams' March 6 Chronicle column revealed the nature of our regulated charges on our phone bill. He states it is a Gore tax instigated by the vice president and two Senate cohorts -- to advance their political agenda.

This tax is illegal, for only the House of Representatives has authorization to levy taxes. Also, this measure is a violation of our Constitution.

The Federal Communications Commission warned the phone companies not to divulge the contents of this tax to the public for, if they did, they would be severely punished.

This tax is another example of how corrupt the Clinton-Gore administration is.
