Trump’s FCC Announces Plan to Kill Net Neutrality

In the latest attempt by the Trump gang to dismantle everything good about the federal government, today we have news that the FCC is planning to repeal net neutrality rules.

Federal regulators unveiled a plan Tuesday that would give Internet providers broad powers to determine what websites and online services their customers can see and use, and at what cost.

The move sets the stage for a crucial vote next month at the Federal Communications Commission that could reshape the entire digital ecosystem. The FCC’s Republican chairman, Ajit Pai, has made undoing the government’s net neutrality rules one of his top priorities, and Tuesday’s move hands a win to broadband companies such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

Pai is taking aim at regulations that were approved two years ago under a Democratic presidency and that sought to make sure all Internet content, whether from big or small companies, would be treated equally by Internet providers.

And it gets worse, because the “open comment” period the FCC instituted was massively corrupt, according to New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman.
