(CNSNews.com) -- Federal Communications Commissioner (FCC) Michael O’Rielly criticized recent calls from the White House for the commission to begin federal regulation of Internet services.
Appearing at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) on Wednesday, O’Rielly said that what the White House wants the commission to do is either bad for the economy or contrary to the law.
“The foundation of the U.S. economy is for private companies to offer products and services -- not government-sponsored companies,” O’Rielly said.
Authored for United Liberty. Earlier this month, President Obama called for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to unilaterally declare “net neutrality.” It would ensure a “free and open Internet,” he stated
. “There should be no gatekeepers between you and your favorite online sites and services.”
Ironically, there has never been anything other than a free and open
Internet. No one has ever proposed anything less –outside of President Obama’s
own staff and Democratic academics who cover the telecommunications industry.
