Senate Votes to Restore Net Neutrality

A shocking development yesterday. They were supposedly one vote short, but this is why you have the vote. Three Republicans joined the Democrats in the Senate, and they passed it!

Variety has the details.

The odds are still against it. The Republican house is framing this as a regulation (which it isn't. It's the opposite. It's a keep-your-greedy-mitts-away-from-our-internet move), so most of their members will vote no. The president doesn't understand it. He'll do whatever Fox News tells him to do.

But still...this was a good first symbolic step. The Democrats will be running on this in the fall.
