FCC chief finds more people to abuse

Alternet -  A new rule championed by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai would would limit internet and phone access for millions of low-income and elderly Americans.

Pai's proposed changes to the Lifeline Program, which currently serves 12 million Americans by providing subsidized phone and internet service, would cut service to about 70 percent, or 8 million, of them. Many of these recipients live in Puerto Rico, and rely on Lifeline for assistance as they recover from Hurricane Irma.
