Basic Cable TV station changes

Is anyone else upset that CSPAN2, paid for by tax dollars has been removed from basic cable TV access by Charter Communications? It's as though we're subsidizing extended cable viewers with a presumably publicly funded channel that nobody can get to without paying extra.

It's like a poll tax for citizens. I complained to Charter and finally reached a 'supervisor' who said that the towns in the area chose to drop CSPAN2. I have my doubts.

The FCC phone number is 1-888-Call FCC if you're interested into why cable companies can get away with this double billing of the taxpayer.
