Rep David Price (NC-4) -- Wrong on Net Neutrality...


(h/t redstate)

Why regulate the internet? Why?
I have yet to hear a compelling reason from David Price or anyone else for regulating theinternet which has no apparent problems.

[Mr. Genachowski] wants to adopt "net neutrality" rules that require Internet providers like Comcast Corp. and AT&T Inc. to treat all traffic equally, and not to slow or block access to websites.
Have you had this issue? I haven't.

Now the push is again on after "a federal appeals court ruling last month cast doubt on the FCC'sauthority over broadband lines".
The court ruled the FCC had overstepped when it cited Comcast in 2008 for slowing some customers' Internet traffic.
Well, apparently, like Nancy Pelosi in her quest to control our health, no hurdle is too high for theFCC's quest for control.
In a move that will stoke a battle over the future of the Internet, the federal government plans to propose regulating broadband lines under decades-old rules designed for traditional phone networks.

The internet is works fine. It has been a wondrous source of vitality in the United States that reminds me of the United States of 100 years ago. It does not need to be smothered with needless regulation.

Until there is a compelling reason talk of regulation should be dropped. David Price should step back from his support for net neutrality and put his trust in the American people. That is, admittedly, difficult for David Price.

We do not need to regulate problems that exist only in the minds of those who wish only to control that which is free.

Fire David Price in November.

  1. Nice propaganda. Back in the real world, net neutrality needs protecting and these are regulations that need to be kept.

    Just last week my VOIP phone service stopped working, Ooma said it was fine their end, and AT&T kept saying they weren't limiting the service. Only after I threatened to cancel all my services did the phone start working again. I didn't subscribe to the AT&T phone service, ya think this was to coerce me into cancelling Ooma and taking up theirs?

    There are countless examples of when companies have been caught out. Stop hating on policies just because they're democrat policies and actually think what's best for the people.
