Senate Votes to Save Net Neutrality

The U.S. Senate just voted 52-47 on bill to restore Net Neutrality.  Three Republicans (thank you!) voted to protect the internet – 47 Republicans voted against it (view picture above).  Now the final bill goes to the U.S. House, where the measure is not expected to advance.  Call your Congressman (202) 224-3121 and tell them the internet belongs to the people, not big business.

In today’s divisive political climate, Net Neutrality is the only thing nearly all citizens living in the United States seem to be able to agree on, and that’s because it should be a nonpartisan issue.  

Here’s a list of how much money the senators who voted against Net Neutrality have received from Internet Service Providers:

Blunt (R-MO) — $1,283,416
McConnell (R-KY) — $1,119,163
Thune (R-SD) — $928,428
Burr (R-NC) — $733,127
Grassley (R-IA) — $727,219
Wicker (R-MS) — $724,850
