FreedomWorks: Senate Democrats CRA Show-Vote is a ‘Disgrace’

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p>Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) has officially introduced a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to roll back the ‘Restoring Internet Freedom Order’ and reinstate President Obama’s harmful net neutrality regulations.</p>

<p><strong>FreedomWorks Director of Policy Patrick Hedger gave the following response:</strong></p>

<p>“It is cringe-worthy to watch Senate Democrats launch a charade to ‘save the internet’ after senators on both sides of the aisle demonstrated zero understanding of the Internet during the Facebook hearings.</p>

<p>“It’s a disgrace to watch Senate Democrats exploit Senator McCain’s medical absence to give themselves a better shot of forcing the CRA resolution through the Senate.</p>

<p>“Senator Markey knows this CRA effort is nothing more than a show-vote during an election year. Even if it passes the Senate, it will not pass the House, and stands zero chance of passing President Trump’s desk.</p>

<p>“Rushing this vote is a sleazy effort to score political points from America’s general unease with technology policy at the expense of an ailing Senate colleague. Shame on them.”</p>

<p>In anticipation of this announcement, FreedomWorks held a nationwide “Digital Day of Action” on May 8 to educate citizens on the dangers of net neutrality and to urge select congressional Republicans to defend internet freedom.</p>

<p>Grassroots activists took more than 300,000 total actions and tallied more than 325,000 total views on FreedomWorks’ Facebook and Twitter live streams.</p>
