Image of the Day: What Obama FCC Internet Regulation Did to U.S. Broadband Investment

Inexplicably, the U.S. Senate this week narrowly moved to restore 2015 Obama Administration Federal Communications Commission (FCC) crony capitalist internet regulations.  Here's the effect that Obama FCC regulation immediately had on mobile broadband investment.  It's now the duty of the House of Representatives and the Trump Administration to kill this mindless Obama-era attempt to regulate the internet, and we encourage everyone to contact their Representatives and the White House to demand that action.

This week, the Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") joined a massive coalition of more than 50 organizations on a letter to Congress urging lawmakers to prevent a continued taxpayer bailout of ObamaCare.

The letter, which was organized and led by Freedom Partners, lays out specific actions that Congress can and should take.  "The first is to recover the $5 billion illegally given to insurance companies through the reinsurance program by passing the Taxpayers Before Insurers Act (S. 2803, HR 5904), sponsored by Senator Sasse and Congressman Walker. The second is to prevent this from happening again — Congress should continue the budget neutrality provision in the risk corridor program, as well as pass legislation preventing the administration from using the “Judgment Fund” or any other taxpayer dollars to give money to insurers," the letter reads.

"American households deserve better than to have their tax dollars go toward bailouts for insurance companies. Thank you for your attention to this important issue," the letter concludes.
