You do realize that this is regulation, not a bill or legislature? The FCC doesn't need to permission or public opinion to offer regulation, that is their job function. If the government doesn't like a certain regulation, then they put legislature on the table to change it. See: EPA. The regulations have been up for public viewing since May. Right here:

It all boils down to this, administration needed some corporation to demonize so they can shoved internet control up our asses. Comcast is just the libs demon de jour. Might be netscape next week.
Anyone seen the new FCC regs yet? Odd for such a transparent government.

You should probably learn a little bit about how government works if you are going to have such a staunch opinion of it...
I'm aware of that and believe it was noted earlier in this thread.
Passing regulations (any) by government without public review and comment (not just lobbyist, politicians and donors) is a major fail. It's un-American IMHO. Yes, its the way its done (Bush too) and its wrong.
Anyone here think approving federal regulations without public review and comment is right way to do it? 2 of the 5 FCC goons didn't.
