I don't understand why TV is such a necessity the the government is paying for/subsidizing up to $80 per household for this.

The theory is that it's where people get important news like weather, etc. Still, $80 per household is a LOT of money, money that we're all paying for anyway through taxes.

So.....why not just make those who "can afford it" go out and spend their own $80, and those who can't can get a voucher, just like food stamps?

(note that I'm glad happypete is taking advantage of the benefit....I'm just not sure why the benefit is even offered. It's ridiculous.)
