Federal regulators will once again try to set rules that make sure broadband providers do not block or slow access to content on the Internet, or charge content providers like Netflix or Amazon for faster Web service.
The Federal Communications Commission's plan for new so-called "Net neutrality" rules comes a month after a U.S. court struck down their previous iteration, which was the second court's rejection of the rules.
The federal government needs to be perfectly clear about the fact that the internet belongs to the people. Providers may be able to charge us for access, but they shouldn't be able to control what we do and do not see on the internet.
And this is a perfect example for those who think that Republicans and Democrats are exactly the same: Are you really going to argue that President Mitt Romney would be encouraging his FCC to fight for net neutrality? Think again.
