'Everything on table' after FCC takes over Internet, says PAC

An outspoken defender of the of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights says regulating the Internet as a public utility is a "disgusting power grab" by the Federal Communications Commission.

An "unelected bureaucratic panel" voted to take away one of the best inventions ever created in the United States, says Larry Ward, chairman of the Constitutional Rights PAC.

 "And it's unconstitutional and it's absolutely outrageous," he tells OneNewsNow.

OneNewsNow and many other media outlets have reported on the 3-2 vote by the FCC amid controversy over what some see as a power grab by the Left. 

A March 3 story on OneNewsNow and American Family News reported that millions of dollars have been spent by left-wing groups to push so-called "net neutrality."  

"Everything is on the table" to counter the FCC's ruling, says Ward, including a "congressional solution" and a "legal one," too.

"There has to be something done," he complains. "We have to let this government - this out-of-control administration - recognize that the American people are not going to stand pat and let the government take over the Internet." 

Ward points out that not a single member of Congress - or anyone in the public - was granted access to read the 300-plus page plan before the vote by FCC commissioners. But people are supposed to believe that the plan will grant a secure and viable future online, he says.
