Democrats Try to Hang Net Neutrality Vote on GOP in Midterms

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of NY thinks otherwise, saying in an interview that the vote reflects the people's choice and should not be undermined.

"We want a free and open Internet", Pai said.

Still, Democrats are already using their messaging in campaign material.

They were Susan Collins (R-ME), John Kennedy (R-LA) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). But net-neutrality advocates argue that smaller companies that don't have the money to pay for fast lanes could suffer.

The repeal granted internet service providers (ISPs) the ability to push consumers towards their content and products while potentially slowing down or eliminating access to their competitors' sites.

The U.S. Senate voted Wednesday to save net neutrality rules established by the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) 2015 Open Internet Order (the full history of net neutrality is much more complicated), which were set to end in June following a December repeal by the agency, Business Insider reports.

"One of the first hearings will focus on competition and consumer protection implications of the FCC's restoring internet freedom order".

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy lauded the Senate's 52-47 vote.

Cable lobby group NCTA also condemned the Senate vote-while trying to convince the public that its members support net neutrality. The CTIA, USTelecom and the NCTA earlier sent a joint letter to senators asking them to vote against the measure.

The resolution had previously drawn the support of half of all senators, including all Democrats; two additional Republicans backed it in the official vote.

Senate Democrats procure vote on Net Neutrality to reserve the net neutrality rules that safeguard gaping admission to the internet.

Despite the Senate's passing of the resolution, the measure is unlikely to be enacted. The measure needs to win a vote in the House where Republicans have a larger majority, and to get a signature from President Donald Trump, who supports the FCC's action. Critics, including the Trump administration, said over-regulation was stifling innovation.

And on the other side, Jonathan Spalter revised his role as CEO of USTelecom with dangerous-pragmatist delivery.

"It's important Republicans have a clear and concise message to tell them why net neutrality, while it sounds good, and maybe it's even well-intended, is not the right answer for them", Taylor said.

"We will take a stand to protect our online economy, or we will say goodbye to the Internet as we know it", said Sen. Markey (D-Mass.) said. "Our approach will help promote digital opportunity-that is, making high-speed Internet access available to every single American so that they can be participants in, rather than spectators of, our digital economy", he concluded.

Then, of course, America's hilarious mid-season sitcom President would need to give it final say, and he isn't exactly on-board with the whole net neutrality thing.
