Cable and Internet provider Comcast is launching a new program to offer discounted Internet service and computers to low-income families.

The program, called Internet Essentials, will "provide low-cost access to the Internet and affordable computers as well as digital literacy training to families with children who are eligible to receive free lunches under the National School Lunch Program," according to the company's blog.

In times when it is hard to muster up the cash for gallon of gas, a little break on any of the bills can be a blessing! I hate to wonder how much of this is being subsidized by tax payer dollars though? At a time when most middle-class families can't afford their own "luxuries" it is stunning that they are expected to pay for someone elses.

In times of hardship, cable is usually the first to go, followed closely by the internet. When a family of four with two working parents have to sacrifice eating out, movie nights, premium meat cuts, and non-generic medication to assure their kids will still have internet for school, it is sad to see families who choose not to sacrifice have it handed to them even if it is a lower quality product. What do you think?
