Well, I'm not slamming them, even though they were stupid before. As long as we are all agreed that net-neutrality is a good thing.
I think it's less of a, where in power now thing, as it is a mistrust thing. Republicans view democrats trying to regulate anything as trying to take away freedom, and that eventually they will use their new found power. For whatever reason, when they do the same things, they seems to thing they can write the legislation in such a way that it will never happen. It's nonsense, but there you are. They would have made Obamacare and championed it as a conservative solution, which it kind of is.
