There you have it.

In 3 years when your cell phone bills soar and the pink slips arrive, please be sure to complain that nobody warned you.
Also be sure to note in three years how all of the people who advocated for this deal will face absolutely no repurcussions for having done so.
I mean we go through this time and time and time again and nobody learns anything whatsoever from the experience.

Perhaps we deserve to be clutched in Comcast's clammy embrace for all eternity.

It's hard to overstate how dominant Comcast's power is in preserving its monopoly profits. The telco and NCTA trade association give a ton to lawmakers, lobbies policymakers federally and in states.

Comcast execs are max'ing out to @JoeBiden. New @Sludge: readsludge.com/2020/01/29/msn…
@JoeBiden @Sludge the top-line numbers tell the story: in 2018, $CMCSA revenue from Internet alone was $17.14 billion, an increase of 9.3% over 2017, out of $55.14 billion total revenue on capital expenditures of $9.75 billion. Its overall earnings for the year increased 25.6% from 2017. Monopoly!
@JoeBiden @Sludge @ComcastPolicy @ComcastNewsmkrs Comcast was the highest-lobbying telecom company, the second-highest-lobbying telco group behind its NCTA trade association, and the 15th-largest lobbying group overall last year. In 2017, when Ajit Pai's FCC repealed #netneutrality, they sought cover in a well-paid GOP Congress.

@RedTRaccoon Here’s a good place to begin.

I hope everyone will take time to read or view Jeff Sharlet’s book “The Family” asap. It’s urgent!

Watch his video from “Democracy in Chains” author, Nancy MacLean too.

The Koch agenda is happening now.

Cont’d
@RedTRaccoon We can’t wait & hope for impeachment or elections alone to solve our Koch RW problem.

NOW is the time to work & plan for the "if". That means having a plan. We don't have to agree on anything beyond opposing a Fascist RW takeover that endangers us all.

Trade groups representing #BigTech, who are currently being probed for #AntiTrust violations, want courts to bring back net neutrality. One of whom was already charged w/ antitrust.

Now think again about why Amazon, Google/Alphabet, Facebook & Microsoft want #NetNeutrality.
Now, look what happened in #NewJersey AFTER Obama’s #NetNeutrality rules were revoked.

Welcome to the Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. With Congress on recess this week, we are going to do things a bit differently this week. We are going to take a dive into #McConnellsGraveyard.
#MoCTrack 1/33

#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.

NOT TRUE.

What you’ll find below are 30 bills of the 300+ that #McConnell has stalled in the Senate.

#MoCTrack #DemCast 2/33

HR 1 - #ForThePeople

A bill that would improve voting rights, fix campaign finance regulations, and mandate ethics and accountability reforms.

From @washingtonpost Editorial Board:
PUBLIC COMMENT processes are supposed to promote government of the people, by the people and for the people.

So what happens when the people aren’t who they say they are?

The President lies and says Democrats "do nothing" in Congress.

@RealDonaldTrump, here's a reminder of the bills we've passed in the House #ForthePeople that await Senate action and your signature:
@realDonaldTrump H.R. 1, which would end the role of big money in politics, expand voting rights and ensure that public officials work for the people, not special interests. bit.ly/2UmpMzs
@realDonaldTrump H.R. 8, which would close dangerous loopholes and require background checks for all gun sales. bit.ly/2MdpWGA

Congratulations Ajit.

You fought this battle strenuously and well, despite all the obstacles and personal hardships visited upon you by unscrupulous, misguided, or sponsored thugs.

We owe you a debt of gratitude. Thank you.
Net Neutrality

For those who may not be too familiar with the intricacies of this topic, I have been fighting for abolition of Obama's Net Neutrality giveaway to select corporations like Netflix, Facebook, and Google, for years.

Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C Circuit issued an opinion on the FCC’s repeal of #NetNeutrality that leaves the future of the free and open internet in question.



The decision is mixed, but it does three things. THREAD:
1: It allows states across the county to pass their own net neutrality laws. That’s a big win. We will undoubtedly see activists and organizers across the country push their states to enact strong net neutrality rules. I look forward to standing with them in this fight.
2: It calls the Trump FCC out for not considering how its repeal of net neutrality will affect public safety and low-income Americans.

The court has released its decision in the #NetNeutrality case, largely upholding the FCC's repeal of net neutrality protections. However, the FCC's sweeping declaration that states can't write their own net neutrality laws was rejected.
The decision makes clear that the FCC failed in its duty to consider certain issues--public safety, pole attachments, and Lifeline--when issuing the order. The FCC must now examine those topics and respond.
The decision underlines when the FCC abdicates its responsibility to protect net neutrality, states can fill the void. California has already taken the lead, passing a gold standard net neutrality state-level bill. Other states can and should follow suit. eff.org/deeplinks/2018…
