RedState has the goods on one of the key proponents of so-called "net neutrality" in the "nutroots" movement that supports the Daily Kos and MoveOn.org. As we've been reporting, individuals -- from corporate officials from companies like Google, Amazon.com and eBay to paid consultants and lobbyists for the companies and their trade organizations -- have committed millions of dollars to hit consumers with higher cable TV and Internet access charges so that the companies don't have to pay their fair share.
For some consumers, the cost of "net neutrality" could mean as much as $40 to $100 more a month in charges for broadband Internet access.
It appears that Jerome Armstrong has been actively pushing issues and political candidates -- and before that bad stocks -- as a gun for hire. That's not to say that the opponents of "net neutrality" don't have their own hired guns. It just appears that they have been more honest and forthright about it.
