If I am a Time warner cable customer, I will probably have to cancel my service today after I read this article
Time Warner Cable sucks up to GOP on Obamacare to win support against major TV networks.http://www.theverge.com/...
The article describe how a Time Warner Cable lobbyist trying to undercut NBC news in their fight over transmission fees sent an email to congressional GOP staffer:
A TWC lobbyist sent an email last month to Republican staffers on Capitol Hill that pointed to an announcement from NBC News about a segment designed to help viewers get the most out of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. The TWC lobbyist wrote in the email: "Next time you think about helping the broadcasters — particularly the networks — read this…"I strongly believe that no business lobbyist will willfully use a major republican policy achievement into competitive advantage with democratic law maker. The most upsetting part is that Time Warner response was that they will respond to Rep Henry Waxman who wrote them a letter:
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), a longtime supporter of the entertainment sector, wrote a letter last week to TWC CEO Glenn Britt and said: "A broadcaster has a public service obligation and should be informing viewers about the new options for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act. On the other hand, a cable company should not be pandering to the worst instincts of the reckless Republican extremists that seem to be running the House of Representatives." A Time Warner Cable spokesman said the company plans to respond directly to Waxman.That is it, just respond directly to the congress man; No apology to majority of their customers who will benefit from unbiased education on the benefit of ACA.
If you are Time warner company, I think it is time to give them a call and let them know how you feel about the action of their lobbyist whom they are paying from what you paid them. All bold are mine
