Yeah, yeah, yeah! It’s always a Republican’s fault. But net neutrality is serious business. The internet is the last bastion of free speech and it’s no wonder that Schumer is melting down over the demise of it. Because without it, conservatives would even have a weaker presence.
Independent Journal Review documents the day’s events.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) blamed Congressional Republicans for the end of Obama-era net neutralityrules as the new framework takes effect on Monday.
Schumer called out Republican House members for “refusing to bring up the Senate-passed resolution” that would restore net neutrality for a vote even after Senate Democrats sent a letter last week urging Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to schedule a vote immediately “to save the internet.”
Uh, Chuck, we saved the internet from liberal tyranny!
… “Every Republican who opposed this vote will own any and all of the damaging consequences of the FCC’s horribly misguided decision,” he added.
Back in May, the Senate voted to reinstate the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) net neutrality rules, even getting a few Republicans on board with the piece of legislation. However, the House never brought the bill up for a vote, which would have likely failed and more than likely wouldn’t have been signed by the president if it somehow didn’t.
Folks, net neutrality doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It’s important and it would definitely quash your voice and free speech. Keep an ear to the ground on this one because it’s a sure bet that the left isn’t finished trying to push this through.
