On #NetNeutralityDay, Who's The Sucker At The Table?

Today a large number of monied interests have taken stands for a political position. Before you decide what your view is, there’s one question you need to ask yourself: Who’s the sucker at the table?

I won’t bore you with inside baseball, with detailed policy wonkery, or a big speech about the greater good and timeless principles. I’ve done that, repeatedly.

Today I ask you this: Big government interests, Google, Comcast, and you are sitting at a poker table. All three of them are asking for one thing, asking for you to give them Net Neutrality. Asking you to tell Chairman Ajit Pai to give it to them.

Who’s the sucker? Them, or you?
