House lawmakers will consider an international proposal next week to give the United Nations more control over the Internet.
The proposal is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, and would give the UNs International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet.
Next weeks hearing is expected to bring more attention in the U.S. to the measure, which would give the UN more control over cybersecurity, data privacy, technical standards and the Webs address system. It would also allow foreign government-owned Internet providers to charge extra for international traffic and allow for more price controls.

So they can scare the IP providers into thinking they will vote for it, which would result in the lobbyists for the IP providers supplying more money to the Congressmen to defeat it, thus lining their own pockets.
Damn shame the RINOs running the House will probably go along with this. Just look at their support for SOPA, etc.
One outrage after another.
