Dear Arizona Internet User:
Please use AFP’s action alert system to encourage Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl to work hard to stop the leftist activists on the Federal Communications Commission from enacting a government takeover of the Internet.
Please urge McCain and Kyl to give strong support to Senator Hutchison’s S.J. Res. 6 and Representative Walden’s H.J. Res. 37. Those bills would use the Congressional Review Act to overturn an FCC rule that would impose crippling “net neutrality” regulations on the Internet. “Net neutrality” is a left-wing hobbyhorse with very little support from the American public or Congress.
The Obama administration turned to the FCC to try to pretend that Congress has given it authority to regulate. So the DC Circuit Court of Appeals emphatically smacked down that attempt in Comcast v. FCC. But President Obama and his close friend, FCC chairman Julius Genachowski, refuse to back down. Chairman Genachowski used the threat of escalating to the regulatory equivalent of a nuclear attack (reclassifying broadband Internet as an old-fashioned telephone system) to coerce the industry into accepting net neutrality regulations.
Here is the link to our action alert on the internet takeover (in the editable letter, please make sure that the button for Senators is clicked):
For Liberty, Tom
