Trump advisor says net neutrality hinderes free data services for the poor.
FCC leadership now fully supports zero-rating, the practice in which ISPs exempt some websites and online services from data caps, often in exchange for payment from the websites. Zero-rating is controversial in the US and abroad, with many consumer advocates and regulators saying it violates the net neutrality principle that all online content should be treated equally by network providers.
But some zero-rating proponents believe it can serve a noble purpose—bringing Internet access to poor people who otherwise would not be online. That’s the view of Roslyn Layton, who served on Trump’s FCC transition team, does telecom research at Aalborg University in Denmark, and works as a visiting fellow at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.Read more
After months of fighting to keep their baby alive, Charlie Gard has died. The parents of Charlie Gard announced earlier this week that they would not be able to continue the legal fight to keep their nearly one year old son alive. Following examination by US doctors recently, the parents had hope Charlie could be saved by experimental treatment that would give him a 10%-56% chance of improvement. But sadly, after the most recent MRI scan didn’t show the hope they thought they had, Charlie’s parents were left with making the decision to end their legal battle against the UK hospital and courts who felt Charlie had no hope of survival and would not have quality of life. Unfortunately, after months of stalling due to the legal fight, too much time passed to save Charlie’s life. If the hospital and courts would have given the parents a chance to save Charlie back in November 2016, Charlie may still be alive and on his way to a full recovery.Read more

American neurologists were finally able to evaluate baby Charlie Gard in the UK hospital that has been preventing his parents from transferring him to a hospital in the United States for an experimental treatment. The judge who sided with the hospital said he would reverse his decision if the family and Drs could prove the experimental treatment had a chance of helping. After a recent examination by the Dr’s it was determined there is a 10%-56% chance of improving Charlie’s condition. This is more than the 1% chance the UK hospital claimed. Regardless of the hospitals belief and the courts, the parental right to provide life saving treatment should always come first. This week it was announced that Congress has made Charlie Gard a US citizen so that he is free to come to the US for treatment and free of the UK court and socialized medical system. However, the UK courts still have the ultimate decision on whether Charlie can fly to the US with his parents.Read more
Over the last few months, strategy after strategy deployed by the Republican Party to make good on their seven-year promise to do away with President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation has crumbled. Even with full control of Congress and the presidency, the GOP cannot seem to come up with a health care bill that satisfies the needed number of legislators, much less the public. So on Monday night, when the idea was floated that Congress should simply repeal Obamacare and then worry about figuring out a replacement plan at a later date, people understandably went nuts.
While Democrats continue to oppose any plan the Republicans come up with to fix Obamacare or repeal it, the GOP last two attempts at repealing and replacing Obamacare have failed. In addition, any attempt to fully repeal Obamacare like they voted for in 2015 is no longer viable because of moderate senators like Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Senator Capito who refuse to vote for a full repeal bill as promised the past seven years. So as it stands today, the repeal of Obamacare has failed, as has the GOP attempt to replace it. At this point it would be better to let Obamacare fail and the burden be left on the Democrats who voted for it, without any bipartisan support. Eventually, states will have to loosen regulations that don’t allow competition across state lines and tort reforms will need to be made, along with other reforms that help bring premium costs down, along with health care.Read more
