fccprotest_051817gn2_leadFederal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to roll back net neutrality took its first step forward on Thursday.

The commission voted 2-1 along party lines to advance Pai’s “Restoring Internet Freedom” proposal, which would repeal current net neutrality protections.

Thursday’s vote opens a period of public input before the agency advances the proposal.

The FCC’s formal decision to consider the proposal did not come without resistance. The commission’s lone Democrat, Mignon Clyburn, harshly criticized the proposal and activists braved the heat to protest outside FCC headquarters.

    I knew Net Neutrality must not be good for America when Soros gave over 10 million $$$ to help get it passed! This POS is like Obama, he doesn’t do anything that’s good for our country!

    Are we distracted from real issue enough yet? Looney Lurch Comey and the mass lamestream media doing their job? Are we beyond broke even more and how’s Ann Coulter doing with her turn coat on President Trump speeches?

    Of course it was along party lines – the libturds can’t think for themselves, only parrot the parties talking points.

      This is another give away to big business

        Jim, maybe it’s just getting the gov’t out of the way.
