Senator Ted Cruz sums up the bloated ignorance of Congress regarding technology

Technology issues constantly baffle Congress. Voting might be the downfall of the Internet when we see how uninformed Congress really is about technologies we use daily for basic functions. If this is the caliber of those we elect to office, we're doomed.

Watching Congressmen discuss technical issues is a stomach turning experience, but it shows how completely out of touch they are with the world around them. We think these people are representing their constituents in Washington DC when in fact they are simply toddlers squabbling over the last cookie.

Ted Cruz, like most Congressmen, knows nothing about technology Today Ted Cruz tried to liken Net Neutrality to Obamacare. This is par for the course with politicians. Without any understanding of either concept, they use the term as an identifying moniker and try to sully their opponent with it. Say, aren't all of these idiots on the same side... trying to improve the country?

This is truly sad. No wonder this country is falling farther behind global educational standards with each passing year. Congress lives in a vacuum where the outside world is a trivial nuisance that gets in the way of them enjoying their mammoth incomes.

Next time your online game lags or that Lets Play video stops suddenly, take a moment to remember who you voted for. Remember that mouthpiece that promised the world if you'd send him to Washington to become a millionaire? He's rich and is getting paid to regulate your internet speed... because you're poor.
