My buddy Declan McCullagh is reporting that a congressional committee may recommend that a telephone tax originally intended to pay for the Spanish-American war be used to tax all data and Internet connections.

From the Cnet article:

“The committee, deeply involved in writing U.S. tax laws, unexpectedly said in a report Thursday that the 3 percent telecommunications tax could be revised to cover ‘all data communications services to end users,’ including broadband; dial-up; fiber; cable modems; cellular; and DSL, or digital subscriber line, links.”
