GOP budget to defund Net Neutrality, Consumer Financial Protection and Wall Street pay czar

Want to take a guess whose side they’re on? Yes, the Democrats are pretty lame on all of these issues but the GOP is now taking these weak positions to the extreme. It’s yet another business feeding frenzy government. It’s a government for business, by business. Consumers be damned.

Lawmakers also on Thursday defunded the Federal Communications Commission’s efforts to enact new so-called “Net neutrality” rules, which give the agency regulatory power over Internet service providers.

Republican lawmakers also agreed to cut funding to eight “czars,” or top presidential or federal agency advisers who aren’t confirmed by the Senate, including the pay czar charged with watching executive compensation at TARP-funded banks. And they also blocked an effort to blunt some $50 million in cuts to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
