BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland officials and Comcast will be announcing a new low-cost Internet initiative for low-income families.

Gov. Martin O’Malley and Rep. Elijah Cummings will be talking about the Internet Essentials Program in Baltimore on Tuesday.

The initiative aims to help connect families with children to the Internet, if they are eligible for a free lunch under the National School Lunch Program.

David Cohen, executive vice president for Comcast, and Tom Coughlin, Comcast’s regional senior vice president, also are scheduled to attend the event at Mergenthaler Vocational Technical School.

    I guess comcast will be raising my internet service cost to cover these refuse to work,crack head, welfare living, worthless pieces of trash that wouldn’t use the internet for a legimate purpose, it will be used to surf porn sites gamble and email drug dealers and suppliers to make that buy. I just love it, I pay a premium price and they will get it for free and I have to slave for every dollar I make and they have it handed to them scot free.
