US Senator Ted Cruz recently issued an apparent non-sequitur comparing Net Neutrality to Obamacare. However, on further reflection, I am surprised to find he may have a point. In fact when you think about, the similarities are quite shocking:
Mr. Cruz, like the rest of the GOP is very open about saying what he's against but is silent on the topic of what he is for. We can infer from his stance opposing net neutrality that he seems to be for the US falling further and further behind the rest of the world in terms of Internet accessibility.
I'm sure this makes little difference to him, as he and Comcast will continue to be able to line their pockets throughout America's declining ability to compete with countries with a free and open Internet. The rest of us, however, will probably not be so lucky.
