Smack down

Congressman Marsha Blackburn's free market mumbo-jumbo regarding tech policy is torn to shreds in this article on the Huffington Post.

I haven't pasted because it's got some neato graphics, but I DEFINITELY recommend you viewing if you wanna see what this Marsha + net neutrality thing is all about.

I found this comment from a HuffPost blogger pretty interesting....

Yes, Blackburn basically runs errands for Verizon, AT&T and Comcast. Even before becoming a member of the House Commerce Subcommitt­ee on Telecommun­ications and the Internet she was known to appear suddenly in chambers whenever a hearing was going bad for the telcos, to muscle her way to the podium and read from a statement apparently just faxed to her offices by industry lobbyists. The Politico puffery missed that little detail.
