Hokie may have been unclear, but his point is that those industries are government-regulated and are NOT truly free-market.

"Republican dogma" is typically against the government-regulation part.

If cable companies were able to openly compete, free of government regulation, then they would have overlapping markets, where consumers could choose between companies, and they would actually HAVE to be competitive. In theory this would mean more speed and lower costs.
