Calling on the FCC to delay the vote?

"Your call has been forwarded to an automatic voice message system. Please leave a message."

"Your call has been forwarded to an automatic voice message system. Please leave a message."

"The mailbox is full, please send a fax to Comcast LLC to forward your concerns"

Thank you for this the Democratic Senator from PA isn't on here I will be calling his office shortly.

Trumpists keep telling me that both sides are the same, and I have to admit that there are some bad eggs on the Left and the Right.

But why is it that only Democrats seem to care about this country any more?

Only 27? That is freaking bullshit.

If any other PA resident wants to contact him, his name is Bob Casey and he has historically been very pro-net neutrality. His office number is (202) 224-6324 and you can send him an email with this link!

It's more like sure Dems are corrupt and often don't give a fuck. But Republicans are going out of their way to actively fuck me at every opportunity

Why only 27?

Silly US Senators, Ajit Pai only answers to cold hard cash

Yeah but you have to buy the "Corporate Communications Package" if you want to be able to email Comcast.

Why delay? Stop the vote that'll screw over the American people.

Edit: grammar error

Casey is actually a pretty decent dude. I had an issue with my local government and went to him and like 2 days later his office stepped in and resolved the issue for all parties involved.

I'm a republican but he is a good guy.

Fucking bullcrap*

Why delay? Stop the vote that'll screwing over the American people.

49 won't stop the vote, but would indicate solidarity. The fact that 22 didn't get on board instantly is the real news here.

Oh look no R's next to those names. What a surprise. /s

Sarcasm aside this is only a partisan issue on the hill. Nobody actually wants Net Neutrality gone but people with big pockets just matter more than people I guess.

It's especially infuriating because for a long time /sub/the_donald would have you believe that Trump was very much a supporter of Net Neutrality and would protect it. During the election there was a lot of posting about how he was in favor of legalized weed too.

Only 1 from CA? Time to get on the phone and get ahold of Kamala Harris.

Somebody tell me why this is a partisan issue

Real question. With all the things the republicans are pushing especially their attack on NN, what do you feel are some positive things republicans are doing to keep you supporting them?

Email. Faxes waste paper.

Come to the Northeast. We actually give a fuck about civil liberties and fairness.

As far as I know, Trump was public about his opposition of net neutrality when he was running, so it's possible that those that claimed otherwise were either uninformed or deliberating lying.

Here's a piece from 2015:

The GOP leader in the latest poll on presidential candidates, Donald Trump shoots from the hip when it comes to Net neutrality -- and most subjects. In a tweet Trump thundered, "Obama's attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target the conservative media."

Also this from 2015:

"We're losing a lot of people because of the Internet," Trump said. "We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what's happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way. Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people."

That second part is more debatable because it's not clear just how far he'd want to go there (is he talking about shutting down websites that are conducting illegal business? Is he talking about something more? What steps would does he want to take?), but it's related to how he views the internet in general.

Yeah, I'd rather the guy respond than all these redditors circlejerking. To fight against causes like net neutrality we need support from both parties. By making fun of them like everyone else is doing, you just encourage an us vs them mentality. Which is exactly why the GOP especially votes for party over country.

thanks, my eyes are very delicate.

The subtext of your question is, "Why shouldn't this concern everyone, regardless of party affiliation?"

Unfortunately, the US has a divisive system of governance, that attempts to pigeonhole every issue into either of two boxes.

I believe it was because NN was put in place under Obama and well you know... can't have that.... for some reason.....

This! Wtf Kamala, one of the most liberal states and we look corporatist based on this.

Bernie Sanders is an Independent once again. He needs an (I-VT) next to his name in your list.

The problem with conservatives such as yourself is that you place the entire political emphasis on issues that don’t even exist (hormone treatments for 11 year olds isn’t exactly a key part of the Democratic platform) but you’ll ignore the fact that Dems will never rape Net Neutrality or fuck up taxation and healthcare like the conservatives. Those are the big issues and honestly that’s why Democrats are the only option despite how shitty they are as well.

But now that the dems are for it, it will make the reps more against it and just for the lolz of being against the dems, it's gonna be a shitshow.

Is this the one you're thinking of?

Jesus that second quote is terrifying. Foolish peasants wanting your freedoms! Cannot believe half the country voted for this man

I still feel that the democrats are too liberal for my personal tastes. I support net neutrality, but I'm not all of a sudden going to change my views on Abortion/Immigration/Financials because of it.

I feel like 10-15 years ago I would have made a switch, but in this day and age the party split is so huge that I can't jump. How do I convey that I want net neutrality but don't want hormone treatments for 11 year old boys or girls.

At my core, I'm conservative. And I feel like a large part of the overall goal is to keep pushing all politics more and more to the left, so that even if you're conservative by today's standards you're liberal by the standards of 10 years ago. Then repeat. And repeat. And repeat.

I guess the best way to describe it is that I want America to be like the 1950's but for people of all races/Sexual orientation. I guess the best word would be "Wholesome"?

corporatelivesmatter

Eh, given how the “Dear Colleague” system works, there’s no reason to assume the remaining Dems even saw the letter or had a chance to sign on.

Sometimes these sign-on requests aren’t sent to every office. Sometimes they’re sent with an incredibly short timeline—every office has a different procedure for approvals, so if you didn’t have time to get this on your boss’s desk and get approval from other senior staff, they won’t be on it, regardless of how much they care about the issue.

Same. Maybe one of our senators cares what his constituents think

Both sides are the same

Not saying you think this, but every time I see anyone mention that 'both sides are the same' or 'they hear so-and-so say', I do my best to post this. I highly encourage everyone else to do the same whenever possible. I usually modify this upper portion, then leave the below the same. The paragraph just before the chart is one I wrote to credit the source I found, but it may not necessarily be the ORIGINAL source.

Here is a breakdown I ripped off reddit. Source To be clear, this has been posted several times, and I do not know who the original author/poster is. This just happens to be the first result on google because I'm too lazy to RES Save it.

There's also a lot of false equivalence of Democrats and Republicans here ("but both sides!" and Democrats "do whatever their corporate owners tell them to do" are tactics Republicans use successfully) even though their voting records are not equivalent at all:

The GOP were already against it regardless of what the Democrats did.

Cannot believe half the country voted for this man

If it makes you feel any better, 80% of republican voters in Alabama think the Roy Moore allegations were made up by the media and democrats. And 48% believe they are a concern, and that Roy moore may not be the best for the job, but a R vote in the senate is more important.

Party over country am I right, in this case, it's a pedophile

Looking forward to the reply.

Most importantly, VOTE. This should not be something that is so clearly split between the political parties as it affects all Americans, but unfortunately it is.

Also you have to first email Comcast to buy that package.

Nor is hormone treatments for 11 year olds his problem or even a political problem. That's a choice that's made between a family and a provider, and typically a difficult conversation that occurs over a fairly long period of time. This person doesn't have to do it for the children, but if another family and their provider see it as a valuable medical intervention, well that's up to them and on that provider's license.

Of course both of my senators aren't on the list because one's been bought off by Comcast and the other is a lame-duck tool.

Not a historian, so I apologize for my brief answer, but the 50's were a rare and underrepresented unprecedented time in history, prosperity wise, and it would be very difficult to get back there. Especially because a lot of people who agree they'd like to go back to the 50's want the same racial divide, whether it be out of direct racism or because they're uneasy in a more desegerated society, i.e. uncomfortable having to pay attention to race even if they're not overtly racist or hostile towards minorities.

Literally everything about the 50's has some deep racist roots. Even the sprawling suburbs that appeared at this time themselves grew out of this racism.

It would be nigh impossible to have a 50's style era that supported race/sexual orientation that wasn't white or heterosexual, if anything for the economical aspects alone.

It's a pipe dream full of baby boomer nostalgia. We need to look forward to a better tomorrow as opposed to staring over our shoulders as we head into our twilight years. That's how you crash the car we're all riding in.

Edit: Fixed a typo.

Free New England!

Let's secede

Because one party has chosen to bow to corporate interests while the other has not.

edit: ...to the same degree

or

...in this case (yaknow, the topic at hand)

or

...without other justification (Damn Ds bowing to "Big Wind" and "Big Solar!")

No way Comcast would make it difficult for you to give them money

If you're gonna be corrupt, I'll take the corruption that at least might help me and my family versus the corruption that almost certainly won't.

Kamala has been calling for Net Neutrality on her Facebook page so I'm surprised she's not on the list...

E: Here is the post I saw. But seeing that her biggest contributor is Time Warner as well as Comcast is disconcerting.

US politics in a nutshell. You either pro or anti. No compromise or same position between the two parties. Gotta keep people as divided as possible.

Combating overpopulation by making it too expensive to live a life of any reasonable quality for a substantial section of the population. /s

According to my republican senator, congress doesn't have the ability to control the FCC.

...even though the FCC derives all their powers from congress...

73% of Republicans support net neutrality. The fact that there is such a disconnect between what Republican voters want, and what Republican politicians want, makes you wonder about the future of the Republican party itself. How do they expect to win elections in the future when they keep behaving this way, and going against the desires of their constituents?

This does not make me feel better.

Well, the rich voting republican makes sense, even if I don't agree with it. It's the poor rural people voting republican that are the stupid ones.

Can't fault him that.

I wrote both Harris and Feinstein about Net Neutrality not that long ago. Harris was the only one to write back and basically her letter was all about being Pro Net Neutrality.

So Feinstein being on here and not Harris is the opposite of what I'd expect.

To be fair, Mrs Feinstein is VERY pro-net neutrality, so at the very least she makes sure our voice is heard

THINK OF THE STARVING SUITS

Can somone non partisan explain why democrats are against this and republicans are for it? Wasnt it more mixed for the last dozen times this sopa, pipa, etc when anti NN was trying to get snuck in?

if Net Neutrality passes that pretty much everybody in america will be pissed

nonono, Net Neutrality is what we want. ashit pie is trying to repeal it.

Holy shit. I had no idea it was this bad.

"Both parties are the same! hUrRrRRr"

Goddamn, I gotta call Tammy *Baldwin and thank her. Going to be getting some $$$ from me!

Edit- wanted to clear up which Tammy.

Double edit- Called her DC office and a staffer answered on the first ring!

I wish everyone would quit voting for party over country. Every citizen should know where each candidate stands on every issue. Seriously...everyone has got a phone. WiFi is everywhere. Apps like Countable (just the one I use...don’t know what other apps have/do) compile stances on issues in a clear and understandable way. They compile information on issues and bills so citizens can learn multiple viewpoints on issues so we can have informed and educated discussions. It all comes down to education.

Conservatives want folks to keep out of their lives, but they want their noses in everyone else's business.

It's the fundamental hypocrisy of American Conservatism. Small government for me and big government for anyone not like me.

What do you think Republicans stand for financially? It isn't a reduction of government spending, obviously, as they spend tons of money on bombing third world nations into piles of sand and tax cuts for the wealthy.

It clearly isn't stimulus through tax cuts for the working/middle class, single-home owners, or people with children or healthcare needs. Ditto for small businesses, where they don't mind regulation.

The only things I see them standing for are big, monopolistic businesses - at the expense of smaller businesses, and at the expense of the people.

Toomey gave me such a scummy response about protecting corporations from government controls etc etc. More like giving those corporations the ability to fuck us for whatever money they slipped into his pocket.

How do I convey that I want net neutrality but don't want hormone treatments for 11 year old boys or girls

Just wondering what you're referring to here? Which Democrats have supported legislation that would force 11 year olds to undergo hormone treatments?

her biggest contributor is Time Warner

Employees. Time Warner employees. Not Time Warner.

I'm starting to think the south splitting off during the civil war would have been for the best.

That doesn't fix the swing states of MI, PA, and OH voting for Trump, but it's a start...

Not everyone wants hormone treatments available to children. I would recommend really looking at every candidate and not just their party affiliation. And even if "the other guy" wins the election, you should still reach out to them and voice your thoughts. You're still a constituent even if you didn't vote for them.

Republicans believe government regulations hinder innovation. Democrats believe that the internet should be regulated as a utility.

At the same time, the FCC is supposed to be insulated from this sort of thing. If Senators want a certain rule, they can just pass a law.

Pressuring an independent agency to adopt or maintain a certain policy is REALLY weird coming from the Congress. Just introduce and pass a goddamn law. You're Congress. Act like it.

The congress that just passed that tax bill isn't going to pass anything on net neutrality.
