|Extremely partisan hardliners are rushing through a "resolution of disapproval" that would nullify all existing Net Neutrality protections and strip the FCC of its authority to protect Internet users -- letting companies block our right to speak freely, connect with one another and share information on the Internet.
The resolution, S.J. Resolution 6, would enable phone and cable giants like Comcast and Verizon to restrict access to competitive video services, mobile applications and other innovative services.
But American Internet users need an open Internet that lets us view any content, anywhere. The kind of Internet freedom we've enjoyed to date won't exist if we let big phone and cable companies take a wrecking ball to Net Neutrality.
Please stand up for the open Internet and vote "no" on this resolution of disapproval.
