Republican FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai said that proposed Internet regulation “mimics Obamacare” both in process and substance, was “adopting a solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn’t exist using legal authority we don’t have,” and would lead to “billions of dollars in new taxes” on Wednesday’s “Mark Levin Show.”
“I’ve got to tell you that I’ve heard from a lot of people who are amazed at how the entire process that this issue has progressed on, and the substance of it mimics Obamacare that Washington bureaucracy would keep this plan in the dark, wouldn’t release it until after it was voted on, and you have the FCC, or any federal agency essentially micromanaging the private sector” he stated.
Pai declared that, “in [an] unprecedented fashion, right after the November elections the president announced, not just what he wanted the FCC to do, but the very legal foundation by which he wanted the FCC to it.”
Pai also railed against the lack of transparency, arguing “a monumental shift in favor of government control of the Internet and the American public is not going to be able to see it until after the FCC votes on it.”
He continued that, “nowhere does the agency identify any kind of systemic harm in the Internet economy, but nonetheless it invents one in order to regulate it, and so it’s this classic situation where we’re adopting a solution that won’t work to a problem that doesn't exist using legal authority we don’t have.”
He added that the regulations were “rate regulation of the kind we used to do for railroad monopolies in the 19th century and telephone monopolies in the early 20th century,” the “end result” of which would be “government control of virtually every aspect of the Internet.” He also stated they would lead to “billions of dollars in new taxes” by re-classifying broadband services, which according to an estimate he read, would cost $11 billion in new taxes on Internet access, and the “FCC micromanaging what services plans you’re allowed to choose from.”
Sounds like an attack on the first amendment to me.

Where are the Tea Party Leaders - I believe that an organized E-mail, Mail, Phone constant campaign with all Tea party members, friends and family that constantly are flooding the offices of the Republican Party, other Conservative and Republican Leaders, the Members of Congress,with our take on these problems and what actions these people are or not taking could make a difference - I thInk that is exactly what I've been recommending in all my 'FRUSTRATED TRADES".
OBAMA IS ONLY FINDING MORE MONEY TO USE AGAINST US AND CONTROL WHAT WE SAY TO EACH OTHER OR ABOUT SOMETHING !!!!!!!! TIME TO YELL VERY LOUD PEOPLE AT EVERYONE !!!!
Instead of continuing to steel from American citizens, how about balancing the budget!!!! Moreover start with these completely bloated and crooked branches of government. EPA,IRS,DEA,DHS,the Pentagon.This is just the tip of the iceberg. Next,cut every congressman salary by a minimum of 20% as well as travel expenditures. Lastly cut the salaries of all the heads of the before mentioned branch's of government. Now cut the head of the Department Of Just nuts salary by 30% We must not forget the most non productive and biggest spender of any president in US history Barrock Hussain Obama. Cut his salary by 50%, because he works half the time and usually does not accomplish any positive the other 50% of the time. I am sure I am missing more missing areas² government that need trimming, this is a good start,right. Okay, Washington you evil greedy hypocrites there are many people who I am sure can find more waste then I did .
Doesn't it seem amazing that after six years, THEY will NOT balance the budget and Keep collecting and spending and taxing more? That ought to tell you, there is really something very wrong.
