We don't prepare ourselves for anything. While I do agree that the Govt screwed up the coupon program royally, the solution to this is an easy one.

Continue with the 2/17 transition and do one of three things.

1. Remove the 90 day expiration on the cards or set it out for 12 months.

2. Allow consumers to purchase the converter box between now and the end of the year and set up a rebate program or website to claim a refund.

3. Between 2/17 and 12/31 make any converter box purchase tax deductible.

We have a much bigger financial crisis to worry about and don't need this DTV transition hindering an already slow moving Goverment.

Most people dont even need the converter box but they have two anyways. This senator is making a big deal out of nothing maybe just a few consumers.

Excellent common sense solution BUT the thing is that the government cannot come up with common sense solutions. At least not the first three times around anyways Laughing
