The lobbyist-funded teabag wing of the Republican party machinery is working in close consultation with telecom companies and organizations like the American Cable Association, AT&T, Comcast, and the US Telecom Association to stop the FCC’s planned protection of net neutrality, which was announced last week.
Having lost the insider lobbyist battle within the FCC – Chairman Genechowski announced he would move forward after a recent court case invalidated the FCC’s authority to protect net neutrality and roll out broadband access for millions of Americans by reclassifying broadband Internet service, allowing the FCC to protect the Internet – the opposition has gone reactionary. Funded by millions by big corporations, teabag front groups like Americans for Prosperity and Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform are getting involved, hurling charges of marxism, socialism, and the laundry list of laughable right-wing complaints.
