Obama needs to stay out of this

From ABC News:

The FCC is already considering requests for Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Wilson, North Carolina, to prevent state laws from blocking the expansion of their broadband projects. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said in June that communities that want to provide their own broadband service “shouldn’t be stopped by state laws promoted by cable and telephone companies that don’t want that competition.”

I agree with President Obama on this issue, philosophically. But the federal government does not have the Constitutional authority to do this. Once again, Obama is overstepping his authority as President.
