Net Neutrality

Guess which PA Dems just sold us out?

Robert Brady (PA-01)
Chaka Fattah (PA-02)
Kathleen Dahlkemper (PA-03)
Jason Altmire (PA-04)
Christopher Carney (PA-10)
Allyson Schwartz (PA-13)
Tim Holden (PA-17)

Via CREDO Action:

They signed industry-backed letters telling the FCC to abandon efforts to protect Internet users by prohibiting big companies from blocking Internet traffic.

Not only is this letter an attack on net neutrality, but by signing the industry letter, they are attempting to drastically undercut the FCC’s ability to make a fast, affordable and open Internet available to everyone in America. They are actually taking a position against the interests of rural and low-income communities.

This is unacceptable.

We need to make sure these members of Congress know that their constituents are paying attention and will hold them accountable when they undermine net neutrality protections.

The staffer: “Yeah, I hear you.” Yeah, honey, I’ll bet you did.

In the meantime, Washington governor Christine Gregoire rips into her state’s attorney general:
