Of course the libertarians who have taken over much of the Republican party (Paul Ryan is exhibit A) are all in favor of having the economic "rights" of giant corporations trump everything else. It's not a bug, people, this is one of the main feature of this brave new world.

btw anybody noticed that Rand Paul managed to not vote on this. Libertarian freedumb exemplified.

@16 Most utilities, including internet access, are natural monopolies due to the cost of infrastructure to operate. There is no free market there. This is the main reason to have ISPs controlled by the public

“These rules [privacy regulations] are nothing more than a big government power grab that will hurt hardworking taxpayers"

Invoking big government and taxpayers to enable corporatocracy is the number one rule of freedumb.

@1 Although they claim it is never the right moment, third-way Democrats who control the Dem party are against single-payer because the "market knows best" so the grassroots are going to have to push it through in spite of them and the GOP.

@9 "small government" is effectively code word for deregulation and privatization in the age of environmental limits. Is that what you want?

Nobody wants a bloated bureaucracy unable to attend to the problems it is designed to tackle but considering the enormous challenges ahead, I seriously doubt that any kind of small government is going to be desirable for quite a while. In fact, advocating for one at this juncture should be construed as a form of sabotage.

During the campaign, establishment Democrats denied that people like those in the rust belt had reasons to not be optimistic about their future, and they lost.

Now, establishment Democrats deny that people who need it the most, can't afford health care under the ACA because of rising deductibles. Big mistake, again.

Charles has understood nothing. Single payer healthcare is greatly popular with the people that we need to get to vote in the next mid-term and presidential elections. Making it a campaign issue now is what we need, not continue to play defense for Romney care that, in spite of various claims to the contrary, is not sustainable due to rising costs.
