The Senate just passed a bill to reinstate Net Neutrality by a margin of 52 to 47:
Back in December, the FCC repealed "net neutrality" rules that ensured equal treatment for all web traffic. The Senate voted 52-47 Wednesday to reverse that decision. https://t.co/VDf1Yo8Qxl— WISH-TV (@WISH_TV) May 16, 2018
There were three Republicans who voted with Democrats in order for this bill to pass the Senate. Their names won’t surprise you:
- Susan Collins – Maine
- Lisa Murkowski – Alaska
- John Kennedy – Louisiana
Shocked? I know you’re not. Even if McCain had been there and sided with Republicans, it wouldn’t have helped. Too many RINOs.
But fortunately, this bill will never make it into law. It’s pretty much a publicity stunt for Democrats as Trump will never sign it. However if it does pass the House, it’ll be interesting to see which Republicans side Democrats there.
