    pretty much spot on.. they cant compete on TV anymore as the do not have that monopoly on the news with Fox now ... so this is a red herring ( speed of content ) to get a foot in the door to regulate by what gets taxed and what doesnt.. what sites remain free which have to pay to stay up.. much like the IRS people( sites ) will be targeted...

    it's true; even a blind squirrel gets a nut every once in a while

    and now the FCC has ruled that the rich do not get to control the internet, which control would be detrimental to those without wealth

    I'm not certain that I agree with that interpretation of this these regulations.

    If NetFlix wants access to an ISP's network and customer base, I don't see a problem with NetFix being charged to do so. As they are being charged for this access and are delivering their heavy bandwidth demanding content, I don't see a problem where they also foot the bill for the high speed lines to deliver their content to the ISP's network head end.

    All this equates to better performance and reduced expenses for the customer (the ISP - and their customers - don't have to pay for the high speed lines between NetFix and their head end). So what's the problem here?

    Content start ups aren't going to demand as much bandwidth, as they are a start up with a small user base. By the time they need to consider adopting the above NetFlix network model, they'll be a well funded company and will be able to afford it. Again, so what's the problem here?

    Why **** around with something that's working?

    I think supporters of this have been sold a bill a good by this administration, once again.

    We already know that this is going to end up in the courts, as many others regulatory and legislative initiatives of this administration. All too typical.

    As if the Kos is a source of impartial and unbiased information. Please.

    For all we know there could be 10 times the number of supportive posts or tweets or whatever, and the Kos would never even mention them.

    They did mention that there were comments supporting him as well. Did you read it?

    But go look at cruz's FB page directly if you want - there is a link to it from the article.
