    Congress probing White House role in FCC chief's net-neutrality plan

    Congress probing White House role in FCC chief's net-neutrality plan
    Congress probing White House role in FCC chief's net-neutrality plan - LA Times

    o congressional committees have launched investigations into whether the White House improperly influenced the net-neutrality proposal released last week by the head of the Federal Communications Commission.
    On Monday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) asked FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler in a letter to explain his decision and produce documents related to communications and meetings involving the White House and agency officials concerning the issue.
    Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, told Wheeler he was concerned that there was “apparent pressure exerted on you and your agency by the White House.”





    So basically, the administration is calling over-regulation and control of the internet "Net Neutrality".

    You are not allowed to read the 333 page plan.





    Until it's voted on.

    Here is President Obama's 332-page plan to regulate the Internet. I wish the public could see what's inside.







    Look how proud that mother****er looks saddling us with more regulations and opening the door to taxation.

    On cue...the corporate paid for politicians and shills are launching a counter-attack against net neutrality. They will do anything at this point to protect their 97% profit margin.

    How can you complain about government monopolies making such profits, it's lack of competition allows this. How is thst 300 page plan chumpy is holding there going to change this?


    Do you even understand the net neutrality issue? Can you show an example of it being abused currently?

    A 97% profit margin based on no-competition clauses written into contracts around the country. The only way for the consumer to pay less money is to break the Big 4's monopoly over astronomically high broadband and high-speed internet charges by allowing competition. How dare a free-market capitalistic system stifle competition?

    Get ready for extra charges on everything if the Big 4 wins.

    Wait, we're investigating the White House for alleged misconduct on FCC Regulations? When do we start investigating companies like Comcast for the same exact thing?
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Your government created such monopolies. and if my cable company is making 97% profit and I'm paying under 50 bucks for 100mb speeds. Why would I give a ****?

    So what you are saying is we should not be upset they won't let us read the plan, but be mad at comcast for what "same exact thing"?


    I'm not sure you know what's going on here.

    Local communities, not the federal or state governments, are to blame for these contracts. However, the big 4's lobbyists are paying off state and local legislators to enact laws that make it illegal for any public or municipally owned broadband or WiFi network, to exist.

    Consumers here can save hundreds of dollars a year with net neutrality and get equal too or better than, speeds and service at a local level.

    so local communities are not government now? you have federal, state, and local regulations, all of this makes cable companies government controlled monopolies.

    This just proves to me you have no idea what net neutrality is.

    We're not paying under 50

    Our bill is more akin to 60/60+ a month.

    It's a ****ing monopoly. The government is going to break it up and the companies are scared that they won't be able to monopolize this industry anymore. Simple as that.
