Re: Why will this bill stall in congress?
Ah the stench of blind partisanship. My side is always right, your side is evil. If I'm not sure where I sit on a topic, i will check with my party overlords and they will tell me my position.
In reality land both parties are fully bought and paid for by various corporate interests and pander to a base they gin up by demonizing the opposition. You, just like every other blind partisan, have fallen for it hook, line and sinker. It's an embarrassment for any mature adult to still be cheering for either of the two parties. Anyone who thinks different is mis-informed. I think both parties should be thrown away and we should not have any more "career" politicians.
As for network neutrality. You can fight it with more government (more taxes, more money) with mixed results, or you can make the entry into the competitive market attractive (again, with mixed results).
Over the years, I've begun to personally believe the fix to our broadband issues is simply to do on a national (or state level for my friends on the right) utopia style network. Government builds and maintains (via private contractors) a fiber network, similar to how they build and maintain water networks, road networks, etc.. And then allow private, for profit, companies to compete for services over those roads. So if ATT wants to charge 10 dollars for a hookup, and then 10 bucks for access to Google, and 10 bucks for access to netflix, or whatever, they are certainly welcome to it, but when their competitor offers 30 dollars for unlimited everything, they will not last.
