Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

Obama Taking over the Internet

Former Vice President Al Gore may claim to have invented the internet, but it is the Obama Administration that will have the distinction of being the first to regulate it. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted today by a vote of 3 to 2 to impose the first-ever internet regulations. This overreach by the FCC will have negative consequences on internet growth and business. Fortunately, like in the Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court Case, these anti-freedom regulations by an ever-expanding federal agency will no doubt see their day in court. The Obama Administration continues to find ways to control the American people by circumventing Congress, regulating the internet was just the next logical step.
