gozer: I made this! (Default)
A message from the people at MoveOn.org and Credo, with regard to a political attack on Net Neutrality:

74 Democratic members of Congress just sold you out to AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

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.

I just signed a petition to these 74 House Democrats telling them that I'm upset by their decision to side with the wealthy telecommunications corporations over their constituents. I hope you do, too.

Have a look and take action at the link below.


As I explain over & over again to my sadly right-wing mother (who calls me a Communist approx. once a visit) -- I don't trust the Democrats any more than I trust the Republicans.
