From my friends at the FFTF,

Net neutrality is not a partisan issue. Since the Internet was built it’s been based on a few basic principles: like the idea that everyone’s data should move at the same speed, and no government or corporation should interfere or decide what you can see and do online.

That’s not a liberal or conservative idea. It’s just a good idea. Everyone from venture capitalists to environmentalists support it. [1]

But now that we’re potentially days away from getting a rule to prevent Cable company F*$kery, monopolies like Comcast and Verizon are doubling down on manipulating the process: they’re calling in all their favors in Congress by tapping the offices of everyone they donated to. [2] And, it’s working.

Despite net neutrality being obvious policy, their pals in Congress are working to screw things up again by making this into a partisan circus, and unleashing Cable propaganda. All to take focus away from the facts: the Internet has thrived with net neutrality for 20 years, and we need to keep the net neutral to keep it awesome.

Cable companies want to end net neutrality, so they can manipulate our Internet for profit. 4 million people, 40,000 websites–and now even President Obama–have spoken out, demanding FCC rules to keep the Internet the way it is: free & open. Now, the FCC must act. No delays. But some members of Congress are interfering, on behalf of their cable company donors.

Write Congress now!

Tell them: save our Internet, not Comcast profits.
