Marsha Blackburn is wrong and Julius Genachowski is correct ! I watch Fox news and lean more often to the right, but I am an independent who has dedicated her career to consulting with the FCC and small business to help protect individaul innovators and small businesses from ebing victimized by corporate telecom giants who, despite deregulation, maintain the ability to spy and prey upon small business innovators stifling our freedom and right to grow by virture of our own intelligence and drive. I have worked with the FCC long enough to know that they are not siding with big business through this new internet regulatory policy, but on the contrary and working to protect small business and economic growth. Whether you call yourself a Republican or a Democrat, blanket posturing or assumptions that all big government is bad is simply taking and playing partisan politics without thorough examination or discernment of pertinent fact. The FCC's ruling today should be welcomed as one place where big government is actually paying attention to historical facts and presenting a solution affording a means of protection to individual rights and freedoms , which in reality encourages the innovative spirit and job creating abilities of small business enterprises. Without such oversight between Federal agencies to protect cyberspace and our constititional rights,up until now, the richest and most powerful telecom and media conglomerates have run amok, spying, preying upon and sucking the life out of smaller, less financially endowed, small business enterprises which are the lifeblood of our economic foundations and future.
