    Congress voted to overturn Internet privacy rules...


    I'm watching the Senate channel [C-Span2] and they're holding a vote to repeal the privacy rules passed in 2016:
    Congress is set to vote Thursday to nullify the new broadband privacy rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission last year.

    The rules, which would have required Internet service providers to ask customers' permission to collect, use and sell personal information, were passed Oct. 27, 2016

    Source: Congress vote may overturn Internet privacy rules
    Right now it's: 40 Aye - 39 Nay , with a simple majority to over turn. Nay is good for us, the user.

    I'll edit post when finished.

    Senate voted to remove the limits 50 aye 48 nay....

    Update, resolution goes to House:
    U.S. senators voted 50 to 48 to approve a joint resolution from ................... that would prevent the Federal Communications Commission's privacy rules from going into effect. The resolution also would bar the FCC from ever enacting similar consumer protections. It now heads to the House.

    It's not about the people anymore. They don't care about us.

    YES this sucks ! I figured that the Senate was so busy trying to get all of Trumps Cabinet appointee's approved, that they didn't have time to do anything else. My BAD ! I would really like to know which compainies sent each member a check last month to get this done ?

    U.S. Senate Votes To Repeal Obama-Era Internet Privacy Rules

    ...But a big telecom matter found its way into the schedule: privacy rules for Internet service providers. In a party-line 50-48 vote Thursday, senators approved a resolution to undo sweeping privacy rules adopted by the Obama-era Federal Communications Commission. If it becomes law, it would also prevent the FCC from setting similar rules again.

    Good or bad Congress is suppose to set the rules as they have passed Telecommunications acts a few times setting the rules.
    They do not want the President (Obama) or the FCC setting rules they were not authorized to do.

    I'm surprised that anyone is surprised by this.

    In so called democracies, the first thing any victorious side does is spend the first half of its term, destroying what the other side did during the last half of their term.

    Politicians need to repay their Corporate paymasters for the election funds they received.

    I'm surprised that they haven't tried to pass a ban on ad blockers.

    The US is not really a Democracy, it is a Constitutional Republic or a Democratic Republic.
