Billion+ At Risk in Obama WIRELESS Broadband Initiative.
At a time when it is essential to cut the Federal deficit,
President Obama is gambling billions of taxpayer dollars on
the theory that massive spending on risky wireless broadband
technology will be worthwhile. The President proposes to spend
at least $25 billion on his “Wireless Initiative”
to deploy wireless signals throughout 98% of the U.S., and
billions of dollars are being spent now on Smart Meters that
are not bringing the benefits touted.

in FCC 11-13. If the FCC's proposal passes, citizens will
be denied the right to choose a landline. Existing landlines

duty is to facilitate communications for the whole country
and for all US citizens. Its new proposal ignores issues of
health, safety, privacy, affordability, reliability and security.
