STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS PHOTO!!!!!!!
GUYS! WE DID IT!!!
WAIT SO DID WE WIN!!
SERIOUSLY?! THATS AWESOME!!!
This is NOT a win!
This is just the next step in a long fight.
Even if the Senate passes the measure it must go to the House of Representatives. They might choose not to push the measure.
Even if the House then approves it, it has to go to Trump. Trump has already stated he sees Net Neutrality as “dumb” and would veto it. That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t change his mind, but it is more than likely the Republicans (or at the very least Trump) will continue to try and kill Net Neutrality.
This is going to end up being a Campaign Issue. If you want to make sure Net Neutrality remains, you are going to have to vote out Republicans, and vote to keep Democrats in the offices they currently have.
This is not the End. This is a step beyond the end of the beginning… but there is a long and hard fight ahead of us.
Time for a reality check, guys. (I’m all for good news, but lies and misinformation makes us as bad as Pai and Big Telecom.)
Remember back when the co-sponsors reached 30?
That’s what this news is tied to: enough to force a vote.
We are still lacking Co-sponsor #51, and without that, the CRA will fail.
We need to focus on the midterms instead. Who in your state is running? Who’s on the take with NRA, Big Telecom and Big Corporation?
Same questions with Congress. Get the answers, then vote out all those on the take.
Exactly. Call your senators and representatives, and make it plain as day that Net Neutrality is the issue that dictates how you will vote in November.
As someone who has worked in Congressional offices, I can tell you to make sure to call your congressperson’s DC office, not the local offices. The DC offices commonly handle these types of Congressional votes/issues whereas local offices are only for constituent services and your call will not go anywhere.
Also if your congressperson is a Democrat, don’t assume you don’t have to call them. Plenty of democrats are not vocal about net neutrality and don’t think it’s as important of an issue to their constituents as it is.
