    He thinks if he lies enough people won't notice. He just tried to claim that we've been discussing "Obama's policies" for 23 pages... lmao. What has been in discussion for 23 pages is whether Obamacare and net neutrality are comparable. Hell, that is the entire premise of the OP. That's what Franken addresses and that's what every other poster has addressed in their discussion with Fletch, but he really is trying to make us believe this thread was about Obama's policies.

    Obama hired cable company lobbyists to oversee cable companies.
    Politicians just wanna get paid.
    I may be wrong.

    Well, that's a tale as old as time. I'm not sure what the relationship between that and the concept of net neutrality is, however.

    Of course it is, and then he doubles down with his nonsensical "Obama worship" rhetoric. Give some of these guys credit, they REALLY stick to their talking points.

    Imho, it would be self defeating to hire someone who is against what you're for.
    I may be wrong.

    I'm not sure what the relationship is between that and the concept of net neutrality. What, exactly, is your point in relation to net neutrality, whether we should have it, or its alleged similarities with Obamacare?

    I'm sure Cruz knows that, and is just trying to start the political spin machine to get support for what he wants. I'm sure it's very compelling to the uneducated to compare it to "Obamacare," which is practically a swear word to some people.

    Good on Franken for taking this apart right from the outset. Net neutrality is what we've always had, and what we should continue to have. But given that it has been constantly under threat for several years, there is, sadly, an apparent necessity for us to write down somewhere in law, "stop ****ing with it and trying to rip people off."

    When a socialist says one thing, it means the opposite. I mean, seriously, with the magnitude of lies told by this administration, who with a brain is going to believe you need to change something in order to keep it then same? Is that like "we had to pass it [unread] so that you could read it"?

    As is Obama is not already using the internet to spy on all of us?


    No one has claimed that Obama said that he said that he "invented the internet" like they did with Al Gore but Obama will be able to honestly say that he tried to save net neutrality, no matter how this turns out eventually.

    Did I say "no regulation"?
    Or perhaps did I say making it a utility is what is not needed?
