A new article claims that as bad as ObamaCare is, the push for “net neutrality” is worse.
Seton Motley is the president of Less Government and Editor in Chief of StopNetRegulation.org. He recently wrote an article citing what he sees as many similarities between ObamaCare and network neutrality for the Internet. But while ObamaCare was at least approved through Congress and enacted into law by President Obama, Motley says net neutrality is different — and much worse.
“The media Marxists who were pushing net neutrality gave up on the congressional route in 2007,” he argues, “and [they] started working on it via the FCC, which is five unelected bureaucrats, three of whom voted to impose net neutrality on all of us December 21….”
The problem with that, he laments, is that unlike they can do with elected representatives in Congress, voters have no way of addressing the Federal Communications Commission’s policies directly. Still, Motley says make no mistake, he is in favor of repealing Obamacare.
“Oh, absolutely,” he affirms. “The last line of the piece is: ‘But why quibble? Let’s repeal both.'”
As far as net neutrality goes, Motley remains hopeful members of Congress will intervene and reverse the FCC policy, using the Congressional Review Act. Motley adds that Verizon has also filed a lawsuit this week to overturn the order.
