    From the left-wing Progressive Policy Institute:

    “Imposing public utility-style regulation on the Internet points in the opposite direction. It would very likely reduce private investment in broadband, which as PPI has documented in a series of policy reports, is a prime catalyst for job and business creation in the United States.

    “It is also inconsistent with the Democratic Party’s legacy. After all, the Internet took off in the 1990s, thanks in significant degree to the ‘light touch’ approach to regulation adopted by the Clinton-Gore Administration.

    Hate to burst your bubble, SB, but a quick search on Wikipedia highlighted this about Progressive Policy Institute...

    "It styles itself as promoting the ideas of "New Democrats", covering a wide range of issues and describes itself as centrist."


    Not a left-wing think-tank. Sorries. icon_sad.gif
