On the contrary, Mr. Rucker. Congressman Rush has directly addressed the issue of the FCC’s inappropriate attempts to circumvent both Congress and the courts in reclassifying Internet broadband access services as telephone service. The FCC cannot draft and implement rules that have no basis in statute. The U.S. Court of Appeals-DC Circuit has made that clear. If anyone is avoiding the issue, it is the Federal Communications Commission.
Given that the Republicans now control the House of Representatives and have increased their level of influence in the Senate, it is now more imperative that the FCC abandon its go it alone approach to net neutrality. Will the FCC recognize its proper place in our constitutional scheme or does it prefer its credibility neutralized?
