Transcript of Lobbyist by Simeon Miravich

Lobbyist
Lobbyist
A
lobbyis
t is an activist who seeks to persuade members of the government.

Lobbyists
come from all walks of life. Most are college graduates, and many have advanced degrees.

Lobbyists
represent just about every American institution and interest group.

 The act of attempting to influence decisions made by officials in the government.

Lobbyists
must have strong communication skills and knowledge of the legislative process as well as the industry that they are representing.

While most people think of
lobbyists
only as paid professionals, there are also many volunteer
lobbyists.

The lobbying profession is a legitimate and integral part of our democratic political process that is not very well understood by the general population
.

Net Neutrality
 Most Internet providers have treated Internet traffic equally. That's a principle known as "
net neutrality
"


Net Neutrality
means an Internet that enables and protects free speech.

The issue involves the transmission of data over a broadband.
Net Neutrality
is the Internet’s guiding principle. It preserves our right to communicate freely online. 

Without
Net Neutrality
, cable and phone
companies could carve the Internet into fast and slow lanes.

 ISPs could charge extra fees to the few content companies that could afford to pay for preferential treatment.

If the government doesn't act soon, this open internet — and the
"
network neutrality
" principles that sustain it — could be a thing of the past.
