Working Together to Clear Away Taxes and Regulations

Yesterday, ACTA joined with 29 other citizen groups, including Americans for Tax Reform, Alliance for California Taxpayers, Buckeye Institute, and Tennessee Tax Revolt, to tell Congress to "clear away taxes and regulations" to "let new providers compete with cable for video services," according to this press release from the National Taxpayers Union, which organized the statement to Congress. The coalition's letter to Congress said: "Local franchise regulations, fees, and taxes on both cable companies and new entrants in the video services market are having the practical effect of impeding the spread of competition, thereby depriving consumers of the economic benefits this process normally provides."
