Now Liberals Want To Regulate Pokemon
|FCC Want to Regulate|
By waiving the fees, T-Mobile scores points with potential customers who wish to play the enormously popular game without racking up a large data bill.
But instead of cheering on experimentation and a win for consumers, some liberals are outraged at T-Mobile for violating “net-neutrality” rules – and begging the FCC to ban T-Mobile from offering the deal.1
Now if you think that’s crazy, you won’t believe this:
While some liberals are fuming that T-Mobile is charging “too little” to play Pokemon Go by waiving fees…
Democrat Congressman Frank Pallone, the top Democrat on the committee that oversees the FCC, is complaining that Pokemon Go data usage is costing TOO MUCH!
This week, Congressman Pallone fired off a letter to Niantic, the creators of Pokemon Go, to investigate their business practices, specifically asking: “Has Niantic worked with wireless carriers to ensure that consumers are not unexpectedly hit with large overage charges?”2
As a Democrat overseeing FCC issues and a big supporter of the FCC’s public utility order, you would think he would be aware that his own constituency is fighting tooth-and-nail against any effort to try to reduce or waive data fees for Internet services.
This incident perfectly illustrates how Obama’s FCC is strangling innovation on the Internet, and that once government gets involved, there’s just no winning with the big government liberals who put themselves in charge.
That’s why I hope you will click here to tell the Senate to follow the House’s lead and DEFUND Obama’s Internet regulations.
