Senate Votes To Save Net Neutrality. There’s Just One Problem…

Even if the House takes it up and passes it, which it has no intention of doing, Trump would have to sign it, and it’s him and his people who killed it in the first place!

3 Republican Senators (two “usual suspects”: Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and one surprise: Louisiana’s John Kennedy), joined all Democrats in the vote, making the final tally 52–47. By law, the Senate can fast-track a reversal of recent decisions by government agencies, and can force a simple majority floor vote even if majority leadership wouldn’t bring it to a vote on their own. Which is exactly what’s happening here.
