Denver Post columnist David Harsanyi argues here that Congress ought to respond to the FCC’s internet power grab by abolishing it.
I agree and suggest as a good precedent the Civil Aeronautics Board, which was abolished in 1978. The CAB just got in the way of airline competition. Its demise was a good thing, lamented only by the functionaries who drew their paychecks from it. Communications is a marvelously competitive industry and there is no need for federal regulation. Save taxpayers some money. Save the Internet from slow strangulation by government. Abolish the FCC.
