Al Gore may have “invented” the internet, but Barack Obama is going to make sure that it’s available to everyone and that it’s free. Just like medical care. Think of it as ObamaNet.
We pay about $1,000 per year for internet service. On top of the $2,500 per year we’re still waiting to save from ObamaCare, our new ObamaNet service will bump that up $3,500. Mrs. Curmudgeon doesn’t know it yet, but we’re going to Hawaii again with that money.
Ajit Pai is a Republican appointee to the FCC. They are getting set to rubber stamp President Obama’s “net neutrality” plan. It’s supposed to save you money and control the nasty businesses who now overcharge consumers.
Pai released a statement on Friday criticizing the FCC’s net neutrality plan or what he sees as “President Obama’s 332-page plan to regulate the Internet.”
In a statement released Friday, Pai lamented the fact that the 332-page plan, which he tweeted a picture of himself holding next to a picture of Obama, won’t be released to the public until after the commission votes on its implementation later this month.
“President Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet. It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works,” Pai said. “The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband… These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and more hidden fees that they have to pay.”
If you think your internet is expensive now, just wait until it’s free. ObamaNet.
