Just read this update on this issue -

"The Senate is about to vote on a resolution to save net neutrality. Starting today, and carrying through until the vote, the Internet will “go red” to raise awareness and ensure lawmakers hear from their constituents (that's you!). Congress can still stop the FCC, and only one more vote is needed in the Senate.#RedAlert"


Use the link above to contact your Senators so they can overturn the FCC repeal today.

-C!

I've been doing this for a bit, with one rep on the fence, glad to see that the opinion changed.  Here's hoping the hold outs change their tune.

Thanks, Charles!

So, the Senate voted to restore Net Neutrality...

This vote illustrates the difference between Republicans and Democrats:

47 out of 50 Republicans voted against consumers and for big internet companies.

47 out of 47 Democrats voted against big internet companies and for consumers.... as did 2 Independents.

The fight now heads for the House.

-C!

Here is to hoping that the public keep applying the pressure and raising their voices.  Hopefully the House don't prove themselves to  be totally self serving.

HA!  As encouraging as it is to have the Senate vote to restore Net Neutrality, no way the House will.  Even if it does?  Trump will veto it. We need top-down change to reinstate.
