According to the story, it isn't a modem tax but a fee charged to ISP's 
by local phone companies. Since a corporation would be digging in our 
pockets instead of a government,  any fee would be free market 
capitalism. Therefore payment would be a privilege conferred on us by a 
benevolent God, not a burdensome tax. And everyone has a share. (sorry, 
couldn't resist...)
