On Net Neutrality, Ted Cruz Is Doing The Oligarch’s Bidding

On Monday President Obama voiced his strongest support yet for equal and fair access to the internet, calling on the FCC to “implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality.” In response, part-time Senator and full-time tool, Ted Cruz, said in a tweet that “‘Net Neutrality’ is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.” A few days later, Cruz wrote an op-ed, further explaining his bonehead assessment. “In short, net neutrality is Obamacare for the Internet,” said Ted Cruz in his Washington Post piece. “It would put the government in charge of determining Internet pricing, terms of service and what types of products and services can be delivered, leading to fewer choices, fewer opportunities and higher prices.”
