UPDATE: We Won Net Neutrality In The Senate!

Featured Posts

Today, the US Senate voted 52-47 to restore Net Neutrality!

While this measure must now go through the House of Representatives and then the White House in order for the rules to be fully restored, this is still an incredibly important step in that process—one that could not have happened without all your phone calls, emails, and other activism. The evidence is clear that Net Neutrality is important to Americans of both parties (or no party at all), and today’s vote demonstrated that our Senators are hearing us.

Remember that in a few months we're going to have to repeat the cycle because of the 47 people on the senate who voted no.

Something something win the battle, but the war's long from over :(

We’ve still got a way to go, but today’s vote has provided us with some incredible momentum and energy to keep fighting!

This will likely be a fight for years to come

This is just a small step, and it can be undercut in the House quite quick.

Anyone in the US needs to check to make sure they're registered to vote, and to vote BLUE!

Republicans just don't stand for anything but the greedy at the top. Proven again by this vote.

I'm pissed that my own state senator is against this though. :saladga: FFS.

Spoiler

That's what we get for having a Republican't being our senator though.

OT: I'm super excited that this was shot down! I just hope we can keep the fight going and not lose momentum.

Not to give them any more credit than they deserve because all they did was cast a vote in the right direction, but thank the good lord for Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski for continuously siding with Democrats to prevent the country from literally falling apart. Literally heroes.

If they didn't vote for the trump tax scam, I might be able to agree with you

I don't think Trumps tax changes were all bad... It does help make America more competitive business wise. In fact here in Canada all the time were talking about on the business news how ever since the Trump tax cuts our business investment has dropped and increased in the US instead because we no longer have lower effective tax rates than the US like we used to

 

My biggest issue with his tax changes is not making cuts in excessive spending in things like Military to pay for it so the deficit doesn't explode

 

The tax cuts in themselves are fine. Not finding ways to pay for it is the problem
