John McCain is trying to pass legislation that would unbundle cable packages, allowing consumers to only pay for the cable channels they want.
One of his key reasons for wanting to go to an a-la-carte style is that the price of cable has risen through the years. He cited the data we've charted here from the FCC which shows cable bills rising through the years.
