There's only one problem. Just about every internet carrier that is supposedly being destroyed by this terrible regulation had pretty much shrugged and said: "Eh, no biggie." Republicans have responded that this is because these industries -- that had no problem being incredibly vocal the entire time the proceeding was before the FCC -- are obviously being coerced by the awful overpowering bullies of the FCC. Which, in turn, prompted the major carriers to say "no, it's just not that big a deal. Sure, we don't think a rule is necessary, but it's not a big deal."
So today, the GOP Majority Whip had a private meeting with the major carriers to scream at them and coerce them into being vocal opponents.
Because really, who is in a better position to say whether this is a big deal? Republicans trying to exploit this as a base issue, or those dumb-ass carriers who keep saying it is no big deal?
