    IRS, ACA, etc. No problem. The new improved government regulated internet will run faster and be cheaper. /S

    So tell me people, what was so wrong with the Internet prior to January of 2014? Because all this is doing is restoring the rules to the state they were in before a judge got paid off to decide the Internet wasn’t “really” communication.

    I don’t know why Republicans put so much trust into business. We are surrounded by companies that do things that are not in our best interest. Health insurance companies, pharmaceutical and medical equipment, Comcast and AT&T, ComEd, and companies like GE that make billions and the government ends up taking our taxes to give them an income tax rebate. Companies are monopolizing the Internet and compromising security so they can make more money. The rising tide has not lifted any middle class boats.

    Its a two edged sword; this opens the doorway for the FCC to start regulating (a.k.a. censoring) the internet in the USA.

    Are all these people really shills for the big ISPs, or are they really that ignorant of what net neutrality is. Hey folks, net neutrality is the Internet working the way it always has, as opposed to your ISP deciding what you get to see. “But now the government will decide what we get to see!” the ignorati exclaim. Well, no, net neutrality explicitly forbids discrimination against any content.

    Yep, you’re right, they’re gonna start censoring the internet alright. Just exactly like they censor your 900 number calls.

    “Know that I’m here”? We don’t even know what you are! But then, only the citizens of a free society have that right. Who are we to question the government?

    Just when has anything the government regulated been “faster and cheaper”
    First they will need a whole new bureaucracy, then they will need to be armed like the post office and the IRS in order to enforce their rules. You know, silence all opposition!

    The whole notion when this began with radio was that the airwaves are public and licensees had public responsibilities in exchange for licensing. That has kind of gone by the wayside since mid 20th century. The only “losers” here are the big shots.

    Another big government solution in search of a problem.

    Because you’re NOT there – that’s NOT what net neutrality means – except in the fevered dreams of idiot conservatives!!

    Sometimes you need government regulation to dismantle monopolies. Unfortunately, our government is too busy being paid off by big telco (thank you Citizens United) to try and actually do something about the monopolies. Net Neutrality is mainly about no fast lanes as opposed to “last mile” or that cable that runs into your house. What no one here has mentioned is that competition is needed here. Yes, I mean government mandated competition. Hard to beat a true monopoly otherwise. (Ma Bell anyone?)
