Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform, issued the following statement in support of Federal Communications Commissioner Ajit Pai’s reconfirmation:
Ajit Pai’s confirmation to lead the Federal Communications Commission was second in importance only to Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation.
Under the Obama administration the number of people with quality internet access went down, and rather than work to connect Americans who are completely disconnected from the internet, they used that as an excuse to bring Venezuelan style regulation to the United States.
Ajit Pai’s focus on connecting unserved Americans should be applauded not blocked. Your vote to reconfirm Ajit Pai as Chairman of the FCC will ensure that Americans control their own internet experience, not bureaucrats.
