Two More Democrat Senators Have Come Out Against Obama’s Plan to Give Away Control of Internet
Democrats have been marching in lockstep with Obama on almost every stupid decision he has made, but giving away control of the Internet is so remarkably foolish that even Democrat Senators are balking.
Two more key Democrats are questioning the Obama administration’s decision to cede some of America’s control over the Internet.
Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA) told Breitbart News there should be a “high burden” for making such a change and that he’s reviewing the decision, while Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) said he’s inclined against the change.
“I think it’s a high burden to overcome to cede authority, so I’m looking forward to the discussion about what this world would look like and again I’ll be open minded but I think the old system has a lot to say for itself,” Markey, who is a member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee and its the Communications, Technology, and Internet Sub Committee.
…Markey’s remarks follow former president Bill Clinton and Senator Bob Menendez (D — NJ) who both came out against the administration’s proposal for the United States to cede administrative oversight to the many web addresses on the internet. Menendez told Breitbart News last week, he “would have a predisposition against” the Commerce Department’s proposal. Nelson, a member of the Communications, Technology, and Internet Sub Committee, remarked on Tuesday, that he was, “inclined to agree with Senator Menendez” on the issue.
Only an idiot would want to give away control of the Internet when it means that nations like North Korea, China and Iran could potentially have a hand in running it. As stupid as it was for Jimmy Carter to give away the Panama Canal, this would be an even more idiotic mistake.
