Signature needed: Urge these two Democratic FCC Commissioners to save net neutrality 2OKT14



THE official public comment period regarding FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's net neutrality rules is over but we can and must lobby the two other Democratic members of the FCC to make sure Chairmman Wheeler's proposal actually protects and preserves net neutrality and prevents isps from creating internet fast lanes that we will have to pay for and that will limit our access to whatever site we choose to access on the net. While the method and purpose will be different (Wheeler's proposal will make the isps richer and grant them gatekeeper authority of the net) the overall effect of Wheeler's proposal with be a restricted, censored and manipulated internet that will be used to make the rich richer and give corporate America even more control over our daily lives. Please click the link and send your letter to Commissioners Rosenworcel and Clyburn demanding they defend and only vote for a free and open internet. From +Daily Kos and Demand Progress.....
Craig, over the past few months, we’ve been talking a lot about FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and his net neutrality proposal, but we should be clear that the decision is not his alone to make.

Chairman Wheeler will need two votes to enact net neutrality rules and they will need to come from Democratic Commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and Mignon Clyburn because the needed votes won’t be coming from the Republican Commissioners.

This presents us and the Commissioners with a real opportunity to push for the right net neutrality rules with solid legal authority to prevent the ISPs from creating paid prioritization on internet “fast lanes.”

Please, join Daily Kos and Demand Progress to sign and send a message to Commissioners Clyburn and Rosenworcel urging them to strengthen the current proposal before it comes to a vote. We must give these Commissioners all of the support they need to push for the right net neutrality rules.

Both of these Commissioners have voiced concern about the current proposal. Both of these commissioners has a proven record of public service. And, both commissioners attended a public forum in Sacramento hosted by Rep. Doris Matsui to listen to concerns about the current proposal (while Chairman Wheeler was notably absent).

Both of these Commissioners can become our net neutrality champions.

Please, join Daily Kos and Demand Progress to send a message to FCC Commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and Mignon Clyburn urging them to do the right thing on net neutrality by getting Chairman Tom Wheeler to treat ISPs as common carriers under Title II authority.
