US President Barack Obama would be granted powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet under a new bill that describes the global internet as a US "national asset".
Um, LOL?

The internet isn't the property of the US to control. Any realistic suggestion of this being a plausable event would simply result in everywhere else removing reliance on the US networks.

The result is the US has more control over the US internet and less internationally.

If that wasn't possible, or hadn't been put in place yet and the US "switched off" the internet, they'd be open to really quite a lot of lawsuits.
