The Wisdom of American Democracy

We applaud the House's wise and convincing rejection of the Markey net neutrality amendment 269-152. It was also very heartening that a majority of Democrats joined almost all Republicans in voting for the final Barton net neutrality language in the COPE Act (321-102) that wisely prevents the FCC from regulating the Internet.
We have no illusions that this convincing defeat in the most representative body of Congress will slow net neutrality proponents quest to create a Big Government "Socialized-Internet." Fortunately net neutrality proponents can no longer claim that their position is the politically popular one. The House saw through the net neutrality fear-mongering and stayed the course on promoting competition and reducing regulation.
Kudos to the House for a job well done and to the wisdom of American democracy that respects the rights of individuals, the minority and property owners.
