Carly Fiorina on Net Neutrality Video

New ad out from Republican Carly Fiorina on the very important issue of Net Neutrality. In a debate forum with Fiorina and sitting-Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) the two women have vastly differing opinions on: regulate the net, or not? See the video below

Carly Fiorina and Barbara Boxer
FIORINA: “Net neutrality, in principle, sounds fantastic,” Fiorina said in a ten-question online forum hosted by PDF. “But I grew up in the telcom industry, and I know how bureaucratic, and frankly antiquated, the regulations in the telcom industry have been.”
“I don’t think we should take a regulator structure that was created in the early 20th century and apply it in the 21st century,” she said, adding, “I don’t support reclassifying broadband as telecom as a result.”
Boxer does not appear in Fiorina's ad, of course, but according to Breitbart's Big Goverment, her statement in the debate was this: No regulation is bad regulation. “I strongly believe that we must preserve Net neutrality..." Of course she does. If you are not up to speed on this issue, Warner Todd Huston is, and a couple of times a week he is posting pertinent information. Begin with Huston here.
