That's what the commercials about it always said.

But in fact, net neutrality is only bad for the greedy ISP's.

Net neutrality basically says that an ISP can't block their competition's website. If this doesn't pass, then Yahoo! DSL could block Google's site, or severely cripple the speeds to it.

Sounds bad with the word neutral in it, right? But its not and its important that you understand what it is. Okay, a bunch of companies like AT&T, verizon wireless, some tech companies, want to control the internet by making sites pay more for more speed and the sites that don't can be slowed, or if they get their way maybe taken down altogether. They can prolly do more if they get their way too. I'm HORRIBLE AT EXPLAINING THINGS so you should watch this video.

especially the second one, just to be random, ebay google, and yahoo support net neutrality

This doesn't make any sense to me how something like this would even work. How could ISPs regulate the speed of a website, and how does it only affect the US? Wouldn't it have to be global in order to work? A website is the same anywhere in the world, isn't it? I'm confused...

Wouldn't that eventually result in monopoly? How is congress going to let this happen?

The ISP is your connection. If they set their proxy to be slower to certain sites, or block them completely...

And the same way they're doing to net radio right now. Net radio, Net Neutrality, and the RIAA...so much to worry about!

There's two sides to every coin. If the "save the interwebs" crowd wins we get bigger government and more bureaucracies. If the opposition gets their way then... well I guess censorship in certain areas will follow.
Both sides have their pros and cons, so I guess it all comes down to the lesser of two evils. Unfortunately, due to a lot of misinformation on both sides many people just have no clue as to what is really going on. Most just go for the "net neutrality sounds like a good thing and corporations are evil, so I guess I'm for net neutrality" thing without giving it any further thought.
The issue is complicated, highly political, and with lots of money on the line. I already posted some links covering both sides of the issue earlier in this thread, but I suggest you look for more sources to get a complete view.

Basically, with net neutrality things will remain pretty much unchanged, except for the increased government presence (I thought we all agreed that the government was evil ) because net neutrality will require government bodies like the FCC to "decide" what is neutral or not; we are basically giving into a nany state. The good side is... well, everyone here will tell you the same thing so repeating it is redundant.

The video is pretty clear when it says google and the like to be for net neutrality. All the big software and internet companies are for net neutrality and most ISPs against it (among other companies that are responsible for the actual infrastructure of the internet). Ask yourself why. Ask really hard because this peculiar alignment of forces is very relevant to the whole issue. Hint: Money
