FCC approves sweeping Internet regulation plan, Obama accused of meddling

February 26, 2015

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday adopted sweeping new regulations sought by President Obama for how Americans use and do business on the Internet, in a party-line vote that is sure to be challenged by the broadband industry.

The commission, following a contentious meeting, voted 3-2 to adopt its so-called net neutrality plan — a proposal that remained secret in the run-up to the final vote.

On its surface, the plan is aimed at barring service providers from creating paid “fast lanes” on the Internet, which consumer advocates and Internet companies worry would edge out cash-strapped startups and smaller Internet-based businesses. Chairman Tom Wheeler said it would ensure an “open, unfettered network.”

    Soros & the usual billionaire leftist cabal has been funding this effort for years & they finally won. If Soros is involved you know this is going to be really bad.

    Part of the redistribution of wealth. Maybe the plan is for thriving companies and providers to carry the cost of non thriving companies. Like taxes from working Americans used to support non-working Americans?!? Marxism? Communism? Socialism? Government does not need to be in businesses…just look at the healthcare fiasco.

      So it sounds like you’re all in favor of monopolies. Too bad the government stepped in and broke up AT&T. The government should have just let AT&T control the entire communications network in this country. Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile would never have come into existence. Probably not Comcast either.

      Same with the oil companies. Standard Oil (Exxon) should have been left to control everything.

      You really have no idea what you’re talking about, do you? You’re only line is to be against whatever Obama or Democrats want.

        Guess since u liked the ‘Ma bell’ era your gonna love the ‘Pa broadbrand genre’

        1. I Seigel says:

          Your reply makes no sense, just as your previous posts don’t. At least your consistent.

          1. Louise Goins says:

            Well maybe when your bill for internet increases with all the fees associated with this regulation you will begin to comprehend what I said. I don’t know if you will or not. I do know that anytime this current government steps into business costs to the consumer increases and service decrease. The government does not need to continue growing. Maybe it’s not that you don’t understand so much as it is you simply don’t agree with me. Maybe you want government involvement in all aspects of your day to day life?

            That ‘THING” keeps on proving that Being BORN STUPID is IRREVERSABLE!

            I want the government to maintain a level playing field, so that banks, energy and utility companies, computer companies and communication companies don’t get so big – thru ruthless competitive practices like the Chinese are free to practice – so that they squash competition in this country.
            If AT&T, Verizon et al had their way on this issue, they could charge whatever they wanted to Netflix, Twitter or “the next big thing”, and all the little startups that become the next Snapchat couldn’t afford to pay the rates. Why do you think these huge conglomerates have very expensive lobbyists, and the other side had 40,000,000 grass-roots activists (kind of like Tea Partiers, but computer nerds who actually know something about what they’re talking about), fighting for the other side.
            We’ll see if our rates go up. You Tea Partiers and other Conservatives have been promising for years that the economy was going to fall apart at any minute, interest rates were going to go sky-high, the country’s credit rating was going into the toilet, if we didn’t cut cut cut government expenses and end the bailouts and the Fed’s fiscal stimulus. Well, we’re still waiting for the sky to fall. I think the Republicans have given up on that argument – especially now that they see the disaster that Europe has become following exactly that policy – and are now concentrating on anything else that will help them get elected.

  • The redhawk says:

    Is this the FIRST step for having BS NBC as the ONLY approved Station to dissiminate OBAMA LEGACY OF LIES as “NEWS”????

    1. I Seigel says:

      Judging from your responses here, it doesn’t seem like you have the slightest idea what this issue is all about. It has nothing to do with MSNBC.

      1. The redhawk says:

        You seem to really MISS Sarcasm … BS NBC ( what the WH uses now for MISINFORMATION)is another name for CENSORSHIP down the LINE… GET WITH IT will ya???

    2. Louise Goins says:

      I understand what you are saying. It all starts somewhere.

      1. The redhawk says:

        CENSORSHIP step ONE!!….. Just like the USSR used Pravda… Adolph used GOEBELS… Free Speech is UNDER ATTACK… IT Scared the DUMIE C RATS JIHADISTS!!!

  • teaman says:

    If the Obambulating Manure Spreader is anywhere behind this, you can bet your sweet A*ss it is corrupt in favor of the perverted left communist controlled progressives! The fact that it was party line vote says it all! This is crap plain and simple!!!

    1. The redhawk says:

      What can you expect from a ‘SCRIPTED GRUBER STUPID”???? Next he’ll blame Bush….

      1. teaman says:

        I am sure the Manure Spreader already has for he assumes absolutely no blame for anything!!! That is the true dummycratic colors, just look at Slick Willie “I did not have sex” Clinton!

        1. The redhawk says:

          I bet that the EMPEROR OF THE EMPTY CHAIR is having a New Golf cart one and Manure Spreader one made BULLET PROOF at our Expense naturally!
          And speaking of Clintons… that is where the Networks and Media let all LIES go to DIE !!

          1. teaman says:

            Nahhhh, the Manure Spreader doesn’t need anything Bullet Proofed as long as Meathead Biden is in is background….that is why he is VP……it is better than a Vest!

            Why do I keep Forgetting that Odumbo has chosen that LIFE INSURANCE POLICY???? Crazy uncle JOE…

  • hpinnc says:

    If it isn’t going to actually effect the average user, then I don’t anticipate there being a problem. Most of us knows, however the carriers can make more money by charging a fee for the fast lane. That is OK, as long as it doesn’t slow down the traffic in the slow lane to a crawl. I’m just afraid if the government gets into it, there will be controls on free speech, on the content of info. that is allowed. Guess we will have to wait & see. I had no problem with what I already have, but I guess you can’t fight progress or progressive socialism.

    1. S. Wicks Jr says:

      Yeah, wait and see if the government steals all your freedoms of speech. The internet is one avenue that they do not control yet. Back to 1776

      1. The redhawk says:

        Under the EMPEROR of the EMPTY CHAIR the Only News to be Heard shall be the LIES he wants BS NBC to tell
        Time to lock and load as out founders did …..

    2. The redhawk says:

      bUT are we to Believe anything that the FCC lap dog of ODUMBO says?? any more than Hairball Kerry is Lying about???
      Remember .. PRAVDA was THE Official “NEWS” source for those poor citizen of the USSR and GOEBEL’s spinning lies was considered the FUHRER’s Honest NEWS!!
      Anything “controlled” by BIG Government usually STINKS!

  • I Seigel says:

    The actual vote was 4 against (AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Sprint) to 40,000,000 in favor of “non-fast-lane” internet.

    1. The redhawk says:

      REALLY??? THEIR LOBBYISTS OWN ODUMBO!!! COMCAST BOUGHT BS NBC FROM GE_ AN OBAMA TAX EXEMPTED COMPANY>>> Can you Connect DOTS?? Like why were HOspitals ( with few Exeptions )in Favor of Odumbocare like big Pharma and AARP????)

      1. I Seigel says:

        And your point is? Are you capable of a logical answer without your clever name-calling?

        1. The redhawk says:

          Making Stupid statements are NOT ANSWERS>> So answer this are you for FREE SPECH and the ability to express your Ideas or points of view on the Internet or do you want GOVERNMENT to eventually tell you What you can say , think and post???… you know something like PC on Steroids…only under Full control by Obamanoids???

          1. I Seigel says:

            Obama only has another year and a half or so in office. What “Full control” could be achieved and maintained in that short amount of time? This has nothing to do with your Obama conspiracies, Chickenhawk. You really have no conception of anything outside of your anti-Obama tunnel-view of the country. And you have absolutely no educated or knowledgeable viewpoint on anything you’ve posted about. You’re all about your “gut” reaction to everything, and you need a colonoscopy and an enema. You’re all clogged up and full of ….

          2. The redhawk says:

            If after 6+yersa you still do not have a CLUE about this Incompetent Snake… you really are “DENSE”

          3. I Seigel says:

            In 6+ years, what “Full control” has he achieved? Seems that his opponents have FULL control of Congress now, and 5 Conservatives (or at least 4 guaranteed ones) sit on the Supreme Court. His approval ratings right now are in the 40’s, if I’m not mistaken. Doesn’t sound like “Full control” to me.

          4. The redhawk says:

            First TWO years he coukd have:
            Simplified the Tax Code
            Done Immigrtaion Reform
            Improved Education
            Done JOB building Policies for the Middle class
            Learned to be a LEADER with a DUMIEC RAT Majority Congress…FAILED AT ALL!!!
            Insrtead he adopted a Leftist Tack of IDIOTIC POLICIES and Failed Administrative ideologies …. and ODUMBOCARE..and a trillion dollar Stimulus that did NOTHING but fill the Pockets of his UNION bosses and Green energy Bosses….. ( FAILURES GALORE)
            On top of that he redfused to enforce the US laws..on the books,. Instead he chose to rewrite Laws with that Other SINISTER Weasel Holder.and reid.. Promote Racism and Divide the Coun5ry via Racial lines… So the IDIOT IS AN EMPTY CHAIR but IDIOT STUPID VOTERS still do not have a cLUE…Carry on CLUELESS!!!!…. and Hope you still have some change in your pocket by the time he is out of office….

          5. I Seigel says:

            Is your address “LaLa Land”? Or do you simply have a sieve for a memory? The first day – THE FIRST DAY – of the Obama Administration – we had Republican leaders (Mitch McConnell, John Boehner) and Blowhard Limbaugh saying they wanted this president to fail, and they would do everything possible to make O a 1-term president. Any recollection of that? So how, in your Fantasyland, would Obama ever have been able to accomplish your shopping list of reforms?
            Are you capable of connecting the dots? I doubt you’re even capable of SEEING the dots.

          6. The redhawk says:

            Go suck your Thumb CHILD… you still do not have a CLUE!
            and a diaper change might be beneficial also…

          7. I Seigel says:

            So you don’t have an answer. Just more name-calling and shuck n jive dodging the question. Typical, and totally expected. You didn’t disappoint.

          8. The redhawk says:

            It is HARD to answer to some0one who DOES NOT HAVE A CLUE!! A Brain or a Knowledge of ANYTHING!! TROLL on and be happy in your DELUSIONS… Addio . Sayonara.. adios and Good BYE!
