Lib logic: Regulations needed to keep internet free
Markey said, “On Wednesday this week they brought to the House floor a bill to repeal the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases. Then yesterday they passed a resolution to repeal the FCC’s ability to ensure the openness of the Internet.”
“Does anybody have a problem with the openness of the Internet? You can get on the Internet and pretty much write anything,” Glenn said.
“Their bill will do exactly what they say the GOP is trying to do. The GOP is trying to stop them from radically altering the Internet,” Pat said.
Stu pointed out the ridiculousness of their argument, as progressives are trying to add FCC regulation to the Internet, which is inherently free already. “When you add regulation to it, you can’t make it more free. It was already free,” he said.
