Do You Want Government Regulated Internet?

internet concept 385 Do You Want Government Regulated Internet?

Only 21-percent of likely voters across the U.S. want the federal government to regulate the Internet in any way.

That’s according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey that finds 54-percent are opposed to the FCC regulating the Internet the way

it does radio and television. The survey was taken just after the FCC announced last week it would impose so-called “net neutrality” regulations on cable, satellite and cell phone providers of online services. By a 52-percent to 27-percent margin, poll respondents say free market competition is preferred over government regulation to protect Internet users. Fifty six-percent of voters surveyed think the FCC will use its regulatory power to push a political agenda. Only about a quarter of Americans think the commission will be unbiased with its regulations. The survey included one-thousand likely voters and was conducted December 23rd. The sampling error is plus or minus three-percentage points.

    I don’t understand why people don’t truly see what is happening in this country. I think they are very ignorant about what happens when the government sticks their nose in every ones business.
