Dear Representative Murphy:
Dear Senator Nelson:
Dear Senator Rubio:
I am outraged that President Obama is ignoring the clear demand from the American people for smaller, less intrusive government and attempting to improperly influence an independent agency, the FCC, to reduce the Internet to a government-controlled "public utility."
FCC "public utility" regulations on the Internet will devastate private investment, undermine competition, and stall out innovation. It will undo a broad, bipartisan consensus in favor of an unregulated Internet that has been amazingly successful for decades.
The liberal groups calling for "public utility" regulation are extremists, including the group Free Press whose founder has openly called for the destruction of the capitalist economy.
These groups have deceived many Americans into thinking that the way to keep the Internet they know and love is to impose draconian, unprecedented new regulations. I strongly disagree.
One former FCC commissioner has warned that reclassification would also impose a massive new tax on Internet service without a vote of Congress; that's wrong.
I urge you to pass language in an upcoming must-pass vehicle blocking any move to turn the Internet into a public utility, and, if the FCC persists, to seriously consider legislation eliminating the FCC altogether.
Please respond to this letter with a clear commitment to act on this issue.
Mr. and Mrs. James McGovern
