Net neutrality: GOP siding with business

Just who do the Republicans think President Obama represents? Obviously, they firmly believe the president represents only business interests [“Obama steps into divisive debate on net neutrality,” Nation & World, Nov. 11].

I have news for them. President Obama represents the people. The “overreach” the GOP is complaining about is quite necessary: The Internet is beneficial to all of us who rely on quick access to our favored sites. I believe it must be regarded as a utility, and regulated as such.

Net neutrality ensures important access to students, homemakers, businesses, unions, medical organizations, the military and others.

The GOP definitely sides with business and claims that by changing the Internet to provide much more access for their favored segment is beneficial to us all. However, changing net neutrality would only be beneficial to those with money to make more money. Why? Because it sacrifices the people’s need for access to important information.

Remember, this is the GOP that failed to provide any input into the Affordable Care Act and into how jobs can be created (other than saying that lower taxes on big business would provide jobs). It is also the party that shutdown the government.
