Recently President Obama urged the FCC to adopt tighter regulations on broadband service in an effort to preserve “a free and open Internet.” This means treating the Internet as a utility, so IPS’s would be unable “to restrict the best access or to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace for services and ideas.”
Breaking it down, this means a government regulated Internet.
And there are reasons why Obama and his Ilk are so in favor of such regulatory activities – to protect Progressives from the fall out from videos that appear on services like YouTube. This time it’s Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economist who helped Democrats write the Obamacare law in 2009 that stepped on his tongue in October 2013:
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says Gruber. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”
It’s nice to know what Progressive elites really think about you and me.
