House Votes To Restore Net Neutrality, McConnell Says Bill Is ‘Dead On Arrival’ In Senate
The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives voted 232-190 to restore net neutrality rules that keep Internet access free from corporate control, but Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared the bill “dead on arrival,” notes Roll Call.
Republican Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma falsely claimed the bill is a “Democratic takeover of the internet.”
Democrat Sen. Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts, a strong supporter of net neutrality, noted how important the issue is to young people: “It’s going to be an incredible issue in 2020. Ninety percent of millennials!”
