Obama's Statement on Keeping the Internet Free & Open
Obama is backing up Net Neutrality, urging the FCC to recognize the voice of the people, who have already been speaking up about this issue. As stated on the White House website, Obama believes there should be "no gatekeepers between you and your favorite online sites and services," and this has angered those against Net Neutrality. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas tweeted: '"Net Neutrality" is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.' Despite the criticism he is getting, many people are glad that Obama kept his campaign promise of pushing for net neutrality. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this! How big of an impact will Obama's statement make?

Whether he had spoken for or against it, I would be for it! We need the FCC to understand that as consumers we have the real right to decide this.

Hopefully this brought more awareness to many Americans who had no idea what was going on regarding this

@MereChrisKang That's a great way to think about it. Most of my friends did not even know about this until they saw this. Not everyone follows tech news so it's important to inform the general public
