Boehner, McConnell pan Internet push

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blasted President Obama’s call for stricter regulation to enforce open Internet rules on Monday.

Boehner said House Republicans would continue their push to “stop misguided schemes to regulate the Internet.”

“It’s disappointing, but not surprising, that the Obama administration continues to disregard the people’s will and push for more mandates on our economy,” Boehner said in a statement.

McConnell, who is poised to become Senate majority leader when Republicans take control of the upper chamber in January, said the growth of the Internet and mobile technology has happened because of the FCC’s light regulatory touch.
