I can’t help but compare Ted Cruz’s extemporaneous diatribe on the possibility of the FCC taking control of the Internet with any of Barack Obama’s two-minute statements WITHOUT A TELEPROMPTER. Notice the absence of uhhhh and ahhhh and personal pronouns (I, my, me, etc.). What a breath of fresh air; an intelligent man speaking knowledgably about a subject that he is passionate about. I’d love to see Ted Cruz debate Barack Obama, one-on-one, about anything … without a liberal “host” to cover for him.
Cruz would leave Obama in a sobbing, quivering, lump of café au lait-colored Jello. I’d pay to see that!
And here’s another Cruz speech on the same subject. It’s also short (2:16 minutes).
The Internet is an incredible platform for 21st century jobs, growth, and opportunity—we need to make sure it continues to be.
Unfortunately, the Obama Administration is attempting to impose outdated 1934 rules on the Internet that are certain to stifle innovation. The FCC’s net neutrality plan will drive up the cost of consumer Internet plans, impose billions of new taxes on the Internet, and allow a panel of five unelected bureaucrats to regulate and control every aspect of the Internet.
Ted Cruz pretty much covers why we should worry about Obama and the FCC getting their grubby liberal hands on the Internet. Given this administration’s history (healthcare.gov and Obamacare, for example), just imagine what would be left after several thousand pages of new rules and regulations “adjusted” the operation of the Internet. And, as Cruz said, they won’t make the proposed new 332-pages of regulations public before the FCC votes on it – they’ll have to pass it for us to find out what’s in it – remember the last time that happened?
