Obama’s FCC Sells Out Internet Freedom and Calls it Net-Neutrality

That's right, friend...I caved again...

Obama, just like he campaigned on a promise to end Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy, also promised America net-neutrality. Today, the FCC and Julius Genachowski will hold a vote on their FCC’s proposed “Net Neutrality” rules and it is expected to pass. When it does, Obama will more than likely claim that he has protected the internet for everyone and fulfilled his campaign promise.

And if this is indeed his claim, Obama will be entirely full of shit, again.

The FCC’s proposal does not protect the open internet. Their proposal is a gift to the Telecom Industry and is what Senator Al Franken, among others, calls the end of the internet as we know it.

The internet, under the FCC’s new rules will turn what was once free into cable television where you pay for what you get and the internet providers are free to charge you what they will for each tier of service.

We pay more and they will profit, immensely. And on wireless internet, like on Ipads, or cell-phones? Providers like AT&T and Verizon can restrict what websites they offer on their systems. Want Netflix, want Youtube? No longer up to you, it will be up to them.

This is not Net-Neutrality.

This is bullshit.

This is Obama selling out the public for the benefit of wealth and corporations, again.

But don’t take my word for it, read on:
