'regulating' is not the same as making up its own laws. It was designed to regulate laws approved by Congress. Between Obama's new powers to 'shut down the Internet', the ability for certain offices to 'shut down websites without warrant', and now NN - our access to the 'free market' Internet is turning into the locked-down China market.

The unconstitutionality of it, btw, comes from the 5th Amendment (some also argue the 1st). The government is not allowed to take private property for public use without just compensation to the owner (aka, eminent domain). In order for this to apply, ISPs would have to be deemed a 'utility provider', which they are not.
