Dividends and Unions

AT&T shareholders get a steady dividend every quarter (so is every other utility company on earth). People who invest in utility stocks are risk-adverse senior citizens. Google and Apple shareholders are high risk high tech investors --- young people.

AT&T (and other utilities) have many unionized workers. Google and Apple have young non-unionized workers. That is why over 70 democrats have opposed the net neutrality plan so far --- democrats needs unions.

Well that or they were simply paid to:
All but two of the 72 Democratic lawmakers who cautioned last Friday against open-Internet rules have received campaign donations this year from Internet service providers, the companies most likely to be impacted by new regulations.

For their most recent election campaigns, the House members received a total of more than $405,000 from the nation's largest carriers, AT&T, Verizon, Comcast and the trade associations representing them.

Yea and those campaign contributions will be keeped by those two when they retire.

There is not a single person in office, republican or democrat that give a rats ass about us, but only what they can keep for themselves.

In the end they only people that will win out of this are the corporate officers.

I question your extreme cynicism, but I do appreciate your bipartisanship!
