"Net neutrality hurts health care and helps porn"

Trump No. 17: You don't believe? As we do - but hear the ridiculous story.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) agreed in front of the Federal Communications Commission Chairman (FCC) Ajit Pai that net neutrality rules harm ISP investment and offered a lengthy analogy to explain why:

"Let’s say a group of neighbors want to build a bridge over a creek so they can cross over and talk to each other a lot, so it’s really for a neighborhood, maybe a dozen people. But then they find out that the local government is going to require that that bridge is open to the entire community of a million people, no prioritization whatsoever. They don’t get to cross first to go see their neighbor. A million people can come onto their property, ruin their lawns, and walk over that bridge.

    Isn’t that kind of a similar analogy, is that a pretty good analogy in terms of what net neutrality is all about, not allowing for example a company that is going to invest billions of dollars in the pipeline, not allow them to sell a prioritized lane, for, I don’t know, doctors who want to prioritize distant diagnostics? They’re going to have to share that same pipeline, no prioritization, with for example people streaming illegal content or pornography?"

The net neutrality rules passed in 2015 when the FCC was controlled by Democrats prevent fixed and mobile ISPs from blocking or throttling lawful Internet traffic or giving priority to Web services in exchange for payment. Regarding the law, net neutrality protections apply only to lawful Internet content, so the FCC rules do not prevent ISPs from blocking the illegal content that Johnson is worried about.

PS. Regarding the health care "argument", CBO and JCT estimate that, in 2018, 14 million more people would be uninsured under the legislation than under current law. This would be really harmful.
