Rep. Marsha Blackburn introduces bill to stop US FCC’s control of the internet

I'm very pleased to see that Rep. Marsha Blackburn has introduced legislation to block the Federal Communications Commission's desire to "oversee" the internet. The absolute last thing the internet needs is more bureaucratic interference.

What's distressing about her move though, is that she's claiming that Congress is the only body that should have the power to control the internet.

She's dead wrong on that count.

That being said, according to her office, Rep. Blackburn’s "Internet Freedom Act" has the support of more than 60 House members, including a majority of GOP members on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The FCC needs to be stopped, that's a no-brainer.   Their alleged "net neutrality" mantra is just a sham.  There's nothing neutral about it.

Check out Breitbart's BigGovernment.com site for more...  I love the big red stop sign he's got posted with his article.

One thought on “Rep. Marsha Blackburn introduces bill to stop US FCC’s control of the internet

  1. Why does Marsha Want Congress to Regulate the Internet? Why not just say NO FEDERAL branch (the FCC and congress and the federal courts included) has any authority to decide or rule on any aspect concerning the Internet?

    BUT Marsha Blackburn did Vote FOR: Patriot Act Reauthorization, Electronic Surveillance, Funding the REAL ID Act (National ID), Foreign Intelligence Surveillance, Thought Crimes “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, Warrantless Searches, Employee Verification Program, Body Imaging Screening, Patriot Act extension; and only NOW she is worried about free speech, privacy, and government take over of the internet?

    Marsha Blackburn is my Congressman.
