Tell me this is a joke, please.

From today's NYTimes: Congress is preparing for the switch, allocating money for 33.5 million $40 coupons to defray the cost of set-top converters, which retail for about $50-$70. Each U.S. household is entitled to request up to two coupons, redeemable at a certified retailer within 90 days.


Do the math: That is 2 billion dollars for health care—Oh I'm sorry, for digital TV.

Yeh, that is what we need in this country.

Am I nuts, or is that just bonkers? Someone, please tell, what am I missing.

The IU.
