AFP Statement on FCC Net Neutrality

AFP VP Policy Phil Kerpen issued the following statement on the FCC’s expected network neutrality order:

“The FCC has fittingly chosen the darkest day in 372 years to impose potentially devastating regulations on the up-to-now free-market Internet. As the moon was eclipsed earlier today, Congress and the American people will be eclipsed by this regulatory coup d’état — orchestrated by the White House — that will substitute the judgment of three Democrats at the FCC for the legitimate democratic process.

“Congress must make it a top priority to overturn these regulations early in 2011, preferably with a Congressional Review Act Resolution of Disapproval that can avoid filibuster and cleanly invalidate the order. Not only is the imposition of government’s heavy hand on the economy’s most vibrant sector at stake, but so are the basic principles of our democratic republic. If these principles are discarded, the door will be open for a breathtaking series of executive branch power grabs that will leave our society and its constitutional system of government unrecognizable.”

Americans for Prosperity has been tracking Obama administration power grabs of this type at www.ObamaChart.com and recently wrote about the need for Congress to act in the Washington Times.  A web site to demand Congress step in is at: www.NoInternetTakeover.com

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
