It's to repeal a bill that hasn't even taken effect yet. It's to move power from the FCC to the FTC.

This is information that needs to be on the frontpage, all the unnecessary outrage is making my head spin.

I've read it and I've read summaries on it and outside the click bait titles I'm still not sure what it's doing and what I should be upset about.

It doesn't just move power from the FCC to the FTC, though. This regulation was a win for the EFF and other internet freedom activist groups. ISP's should NOT be allowed to sell your information without your explicit permission. Period. They should be subject to prosecution if they do.

What do you mean? The FTC was about to stop ISPs from misusing your data. Now they won't be stopped. It will continue and there's nothing you can do about it.

This is why we can't have nice things no one is reading any source documents. I now just sit back and hope they cause themselves a stroke. 😊

The source documents don't say any of this, the politicians didn't say any of this. It's just some channers' wishful thinking, not reality.

Who fucking cares? Stop making excuses for Trump fucking over the people.

If this was the actual reason, why didn't a single fucking one of those republicans or Trump say this? Because it's not the fucking reason. Because we know for a fact that the people who introduced the bill were being paid by the ISPs.

Stop living in your fantasy world and face reality. Trump is not for the people, he is just another republican president. He was never more than the lesser of two evils.
