[W]hat might the American internet look like without net neutrality? Just look at Portugal. The country's wireless carrier Meo offers a package that's very different from those available in the US. Users pay for traditional "data" -- and on top of that, they pay for additional packages based on the kind of data and apps they want to use. ... Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna of California originally shared the Meo example on Twitter in October. "In Portugal, with no net neutrality, internet providers are starting to split the net into packages," he wrote. "A huge advantage for entrenched companies, but it totally ices out startups trying to get in front of people which stifles innovation. This is what's at stake, and that's why we have to save net neutrality."

"Here is a handy chart..." - #14 | Posted by Avigdore at 2017-12-25 12:10 PM

Here's what that "handy chart" also says:

Things change however once 2025 rolls around. If no change is made, what were tax cuts will become tax hikes, even relative to current law.

A majority of Americans in a decade's time will then pay higher taxes, including 69.7% of the middle quintile.

Oops.
