    If there is a way to squeeze money out of the American people, the GOP will find it.

    You know that to be true. So stop with the "leftist tears".

    I think I follow but under Net Neutrality I HAD/HAVE Netflix with streaming and no buffering. I'm in St Louis and found 5 meg DSL internet could work Netflix on two devices and Splatoon or Youtube on another fine, excellent on the 100 meg cable (which is really 60 meg lol).

    A part of me agrees that Netflix is using more of the internet provider's bandwidth (if that matters) and should pay for it. Its not like they have since the 90's though and it actually mattered in the 90's when content forced the high speed internet move.

    The part that gets me is how non open the internet provider market is.

    Most places in St Louis have 2.5ish choices Cable, DSL or stretching it a bit here, using your phone as a hot spot or a satellite service. Are we predicting an increase with the rollback?

    Be nice to the R's. You need them to vote your way, not to anger them into digging in their heels.

    The last time they tried to kill net neutrality was 2006, the last time Republicans where in charge. it will take a year or two for any of us to feel the heat.
