Republican senator calls on Congress to pass law protecting net neutrality
And while Thune has indicated his support for a net neutrality law, he also speaks quite favorably of the FCC’s current plan to get rid of the rules already in place, calling the Title II policies "burdensome" and "onerous."

Don't be fooled. On the surface, Congress passing a NN law may sound like an acceptable solution. However, with the government currently being controlled by the asshole Republicans, any such law would be written by the ISPs and be so full of holes and exceptions that it would literally be useless.

The *ONLY* way this would work, is if it waited until the Dems take back control.

Last week, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) introduced the Save Net Neutrality Act, which would stop the FCC from continuing its current proceeding and leave in place the 2015 rules.

Surprisingly, it sounds like there's one Republican left who isn't insane, or hasn't been completely bought and paid for by the ISPs. But again, there's not a chance in hell this would get anywhere with the current Congress.

After this NN bullshit, there needs to be a thorough overhaul of the Commissions, and who they are beholden to. The fact that the Senate / Congress have literally NO SAY over an assclown like Ajit Pai—who literally stands there and says "Fuck you, I'm getting paid," and in doing so fucks over 350 million Americans—is absolutely ludicrous.

This asshole WAS NOT ELECTED. Why is he untouchable???
