SAVE NET NEUTRALITY (and be ready to fight the Trump Tax Scam)

#FCCHandsOffTheNet
#NetNeutrality
Things are up in the air on the Trump Tax Scam for the moment. Be ready for emergency calls to action if something moves on the tax plan. And while you are charging your phone to be ready to make these calls… please take a moment to save the internet.
Yesterday around the country, people took to the streets to protest the FCC’s plans to end net neutrality. Ending net neutrality would
• give internet providers the ability to create fast and slow lanes of traffic and amplify certain voices while censoring others
• hurt small businesses
• be a “death knell” for the Resistance 
On one side there is the chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai, who used to work for Verizon (which has lobbied for an end to net neutrality). On the other side are hundreds of tech companies who signed a letter on Cyber Monday imploring the FCC to retain net neutrality, stating that “Our current net neutrality rules support innovation and give all businesses the opportunity to compete equally for consumers” 
A free and fair internet is vital to a free and fair America. We must make it clear to the FCC that ending net neutrality will not stand.
