Verizon may be out for their own interests, but they're right. The FCC is part of the executive branch. Their job is enforcement of laws made by Congress, not to make their own laws.

All these agencies we have are clearly in violation of the US Constitution which only grants such authority to Congress.


Are you aware that, in the Communications Act of 1934, Congress created the FCC expressly to regulate "interstate and foreign commerce in communication by wire and radio"? By way of legislation, Congress has delegated that authority to the FCC. Thus, to say that the FCC is "clearly in violation of the US Constitution" is nonsense.

"SEC. 1. [47 U.S.C. 151] PURPOSES OF ACT, CREATION OF FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION.
For the purpose of regulating interstate and foreign commerce in communication by wire and radio so as to make available, so far as possible, to all the people of the United States, without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex, a rapid, efficient, Nation- wide, and world-wide wire and radio communication service with adequate facilities at reasonable charges, for the purpose of the national defense, for the purpose of promoting safety of life and property through the use of wire and radio communication, and for the purpose of securing a more effective execution of this policy by centralizing authority heretofore granted by law to several agencies and by granting additional authority with respect to interstate and foreign commerce in wire and radio communication, there is hereby created a commission to be known as the ''Federal Communications Commission,'' which shall be constituted as hereinafter provided, and which shall execute and enforce the provisions of this Act."
