Today, the House of Representatives voted to repeal Net Neutrality. H.J. Res 37, a resolution invoking the Congressional Review Act to reverse the FCC’s Net Neutrality order, passed the House under H.Res 200 by a 241-178 vote. Republicans voted 236-0 for repeal, while Democrats voted 178-5 against repeal. The five Democrats? Boren of OK, Conyers of MI, Costa of CA, Peterson of MN, and Shuler of NC. So of the Democrats you called, two went our way. We’ll have to remember the ones who chose to side with the San Francisco Democrat agenda instead of the (slightly) bipartisan position.
I feel good about this big win in the House today. I’ll let Fred Upton tell you why this vote was important:
Though as good as we feel about this, our work is not done. Not only do we need to fight for this resolution in the Senate, but I think we’re going to have to start the process all over again with a new FCC overreach. They’ve now passed the Sprint Regulatory Bailout, or what is better known as Data Roaming price controls. This is yet another gross violation of the strict limits placed on the FCC by the Telecommunications Act.
Seton Motley suggests we may want to shut down the FCC. I’m hesitant to go that far, but it’s hard to argue against him when the FCC shows so little respect for the Congress, the Courts, and the fundamental Rule of Law. We need to invoke the Congressional Review Act against them as many times as it takes to whip them into line.
