“The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted that the Internet is a utility the government can heavily regulate,” he said. “This is terrible news for the American people. The last thing the Internet needs is a massive government takeover that threatens innovation, economic freedom, and jobs. Yet the FCC’s decision to impose heavy-handed regulations on broadband providers would do just that. The FCC’s decision is a big government, legally suspect solution in search of a problem that doesn’t exist.

“One of the main reasons why the Internet has thrived, created jobs, and provided exciting innovations is because it has never been subject to political control. That is why I intend to fight against this unwise FCC action and keep our Internet free from more government restrictions.”

He said he discussed the matter on Feb. 26 with WHP radio’s RJ Harris that can be heard here.
