DeMint: Public Interest is in Free Markets

by on December 18, 2007 · 8 comments

In a December 13th speech to The Free State Foundation, Senator Jim DeMint quotes Randy May in asking if the FCC should be renamed the “Federal Unbundling Commission.”

DeMint expands on the unbundling theme covering Open Access, A la Carte and Multicast Must Carry, and Net Neutrality.

My favorite quote:

Market regulation is no less than market manipulation, and we need to take that
power away from the government and put it where it belongs, in the hands of
consumers in the free market.

Check out this excellent presentation on the absurdity of the FCC’s telecom and cable agenda at the The Free State Foundation.

If only more members of Congress took this position on telecom issues!
