ajit pai, more like a shit pai amirite

Imagine having the restrictions of the school Wi-Fi filter in your own house. Now, don’t imagine it because it’s about to become a reality. Yesterday the Chairman of the FCC Ajit Pai orchestrated the vote for the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to repeal the existing Net Neutrality rules, which protects consumers from Internet Providers from blocking or slowing down your internet traffic. The rules from 2015 were repealed in a 3 – 2 vote.  New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as well as the Attorney Generals of other states and The Free Press Action Fund are suing the FCC for: the basis of its broken process, deeply flawed legal reasoning, willful rejection of evidence that contradicts its preordained conclusions, and absolute disregard for public input. Another option to protect Net Neutrality. is the Congressional Review Act. With this law, Congress may block an agencies decision by passing a vote of disapproval in both chambers of Congress. Only 30 Senators are need to sign a petition to force a vote. If you disagree with the repeal of Net Neutrality you can text “RESIST” 50409 or go to battleforthenet.com You can also call your senators, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch by calling 202-225-3121 and an operator will connect you to their offices.

The battle to protect the internet is far from over.
