This week, the United States Senate is expected to finally vote on overturning the most brazen of all of the Obama administration’s regulatory power grabs. Now, to be the most brazen is tough in light of the EPA’s regulatory onslaught and the NLRB’s effort to tell companies what states they can locate in. But the FCC takes the cake, because their astonishing net neutrality power grab is taking place despite nearly zero support from Congress, an emphatic federal court decision telling them they have no relevant jurisdiction, and a 2010 election in which all 95 candidates who campaigned on the issue lost. A perfect record of failure. But if the Senate fails to stop the FCC this week, they might get away with it.
