    Jeb Bush believes net neutrality rules are the 'craziest ideas'

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush is almost certainly running for president in 2016, and he's recently been weighing in on several hot button topics. Last month, he dumped the email addresses and social security numbers of hundreds of Florida residents online "in the spirit of transparency" before almost immediately attempting to undo it. Now, young Bush has some thoughts on net neutrality. Speaking at the Cedar Rapids Pizza Ranch in Iowa this weekend, Bush criticized President Obama's stance on internet regulation, saying it would "stifle competition, stifle innovation."

    This is the first time Jeb Bush has spoken publicly about net neutrality. Bush is responding to the FCC's recent decision to protect the internet with Title II regulation. The Open Internet Order will prevent tiered internet by prohibiting paid fast lanes, site blocking, and speed throttling.
    Bush's comments mimic the stance of several Republicans and broadband providers who say net neutrality gives the government too much control. The New York Times notesRepublicans in Congress reacted the same way in 1934 when President Roosevelt first passed Title II of the Communications Act. It is likely that Congressional opponents of net neutrality will attempt to pass legislation to overturn the FCC's ruling.
