Take My Idea Please: Subsidized Internet

I was thinking the other day about how crucial it is to have Internet access. We rely on the Internet to run businesses, apply for jobs, to communicate with faraway friends and family, dating, interactive gaming, education, and consuming video and audio content.

Gone are the days in which one could simply get by with checking their email twice a week at a library or other public terminal. These days  many of us are walking around with numerous Internet enabled devices.

However, there are a great deal of low-income folks whom cannot afford Internet access. In 2014, not having Internet access greatly limits one's ability to apply for jobs, find bargains, and/or further their education.

We need to start a program which offers 6 to 9 month vouchers to low-income people for Internet access. The program will enable the recipients to take online classes, apply for jobs, and start businesses.
