Remember when the radicals were unhappy about Net Neutrality, because the FCC didn’t go all the way and repeal key portions of the Telecommunications Act by regulatory fiat, by “reclassifying” the Internet as not being a data service anymore?

Mike Lee: See what you’ve done? Stop it. Defend private business, including Google, from Obama’s runaway regulators. The TEA party didn’t put you there to shore up the state.
So let me get this straight: We want to ban AT&T from getting new Spectrum. We want to ban Verizon from getting new spectrum. In fact, we want to regulate out of existence the entire secondary market for spectrum. then we want to mandate LTE? Insane. Obama must be defeated. These regulators, including FCC, are so out of control they can’t even see the law and the Constitution from their front doors.
Copyright is not a bad thing, which is what separates the ineffective left anti-SOPA advocates from the effective right ones. PROTECT IP was never going down in the Dem Senate. Only in the Republican House would it be defeated.
Yes, I know Zoe Lofgren is a Democrat but she’s in a tiny minority in her party. She, along with Ron Wyden in the Senate, has an inkling of what innovation is needed by industry. So she’s been decent on these issues.
