We need to make net neutrality a voting issue. Online outrage needs to turn into votes.

Friends, the Senate could pass this atrocious tax bill next week. Yes next week. Call your Senator today and tell your friends. I'm going to stay on taxes 24-7 and focus as much as I can and I hope you will too.

4) I generally prefer that this kind of thing get settled in the legislative branch. (End)

3) The moment they are given a business plan with fast and slow lanes, blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization, there will be no law against it. Just a business decision by a publicly traded company. I sincerely hope my worries do not come to fruition.

2) The truth is we don’t know what will happen in the marketplace. But if this rule passes and is held up in court, the only reason that an ISP would honor net neutrality is if it would make them more money.

1) The Internet works because the people who charge you for access to it cannot charge different amounts for different content, depending on their commercial interests. You pay the ISP, you get the whole Internet. What the FCC is doing is revoking that rule.

The Senate tax bill is, at root, a middle-class tax hike to pay for a tax cut for the wealthy. 98% of households making $5+ million get a tax cut. 27% of household making $30k-$100k get a tax cut. New analysis just out:

Without Net Neutrality companies can block, throttle, or charge you more to visit certain websites. The FCC is making a grave error this week.

The reason this is an unpopular tax cut is that it isn’t a tax cut at all and people aren’t stupid.

Their middle class tax increase is very unpopular and they are counting on us having a terrible attention span.

Dear university presidents, provosts, deans, and faculty members: It would be good if you visibly lobbied against the grad student tax. Even if you can't win, it would reassure your colleagues that you care.

What's odd about the state of the GOP is they see passing a massively unpopular bill as their only option. It hasn't occurred to them to pass massively popular bills like strengthening the ACA or background checks or a min wage increase.

Hey everybody. Rich people do not need a tax cut. At all.
