There’s a lot to it and I feel it’s best to talk about it over donuts or beverages.

While all of looks in favour of it, I wonder what are the arguments against it ?

Wouldn't say I am completely against it, but the term is vague and designed to make it sound good (aka marketing). 

What if it was (more accurately) phrased as "How do you feel about the government telling private companies how they can and can't be paid for the infrastructure that they provide?"

it's not about being paid but can a company monopolize it's own service by discriminating against different sites. So hypothetically Store A pays more $$ to your Mobile carrier and even though you want to support Store B, their website is throttled so they lose money

I think it is going to evolve.  We do too much secure traffic over what was primarily an academic network initially, built on being "nice" and "sharing".   The reality is now the world runs on the internet.   There may still be a place for public and open networks with low regulation, but as we start to realize the infrastructure risk to utilities, banking, etc, there is going to be a need for a secure portion of the network which is regulated, more secure.  It could be paid for my taxes perhaps, but neutrality likely cannot continue as it was initially envisioned.
