A recent MSNBC clip shows a reporter stationed in a hallway in the U.S. Capitol complex, standing outside of a room where Republican members of Congress were meeting prior to an expected 1 PM vote on the latest version of the American Health Care Act (Trumpcare). As each member walks out of the meeting, the reporter asks, “Congressman, have you read the bill?” In the clip, at least six different members refused to answer the reporter’s question, or give him anything other than a brief acknowledgement.

Billboards target lawmakers who voted to let ISPs sell user information

When Congress voted in March to block FCC privacy rules and let internet service providers sell users’ personal data, it was a coup for the telecom industry. Now, the nonprofit, pro-privacy group Fight for the Future is publicizing just how much the industry paid in an attempt to sway those votes.

The group unveiled four billboards, targeting Reps. Marsha Blackburn and John Rutherford, as well as Sens. Jeff Flake and Dean Heller. All four billboards, which were paid for through donations, were placed in the lawmakers’ districts. “Congress voting to gut Internet privacy was one of the most blatant displays of corruption in recent history,” Fight for the Future co-founder Tiffiniy Cheng said in a statement on the project.

  1. “Congress voting to gut Internet privacy was one of the most blatant displays of corruption in recent history,”

    Along with all the other ones…

  2. I actually called the number on the billboard and spoke to an aid. She explained that all they did was to move the regulations back to the FTC where it belongs and that their was long standing rules there that were crafted 20 years ago. I asked her when the first browser came out and when online shopping started and when tracking shopping and search started? I then asked how 20 year old rules could possible cover things not yet being used/invented. I also reminded her the FCC is the proper place for such. Bottom line, a pleasant conversation with a brainwashed drone. Your government at work, the best policy special interests and big money can buy.

Goddamn them all. Goddamn the political movement that spawned them and goddamn the political party in which that movement found a home, and goddamn the infrastructure in which their pus-bag of an ideology was allowed to fester until it splattered the plague all over the government. Goddamn anyone who believes that blind, genetic luck is a demonstration of divine design. Goddamn anyone who believes in a god who hands out disease as punishment. Goddamn anyone who stays behind the walls and dances while the plague comes back again.

  1. Terrible. Now the people who find themselves in the position of Vic Chesnutt, in debt from medical bills and in need of surgery, will once more have to resort to drastic measures.

  2. The little guy, the sick, the poor – Republicans have no use for them, unless they are dumb_f_ck stupid and believe and vote the conservative bullshit.
