The FCC repealed net neutrality, which became official on June 11th. Every second that goes by, the internet is dying just a little bit more, as ISP’s prioritize data, raise prices and unfairly eliminate their competition. The ISP’s love to say how it won’t change anything, and how they won’t use it to their advantage to gain a profit.
Then why did join forces with their biggest competitors to work together and spend $102 million in their efforts to kill net neutrality?
We may have lost that battle, but the war is not over. We need to band together and push harder that ever before to let our lawmakers know how we feel. We need a total of 215 votes net neutrality to win the house. Currently, we have 175, leaving us 43 short. Tomorrow, on July 23rd, major websites are banding together to drive traffic to the “BattleForTheNet.com scoreboard“, so people can quickly and easily find out where their reps stand on this issue.
This is a follow up to the first GOP House Rep announcing their intent to sign the CRA resolution to restore net neutrality. This is a great start, and we need to use this momentum to convince other House Reps to do the same.
Then, join us in our mission to let every American know so they can get involved too. Spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, your own website or any other online venue that will be seen, and please ask everyone you know to do the same. This affects all of us, and our only chance, is if we stand together.
What is the CRA Resolution?
Our Congress has the power to overrule the FCC by way of the Congressional Review Act (CRA), thus giving them the ability to save net neutrality. The CRA resolution actually passed the Senate 52 to 47, but it will be a major uphill battle to the House of Representatives to do the same.
To do this, we need to get all of the Democrats and at least a couple dozen Republicans to support the CRA. For more information on how you can join the fight, go to www.BattleForTheNet.com.
