Congress is trying to repeal online privacy rules, and we're trying to stop them--but we need your help today! AMA!
Last year, the FCC passed some pretty awesome rules that would bar your internet service provider (ISP) from invading your privacy. But last Thursday, Republicans in the Senate have voted to repeal those rules. If the House of Representatives votes the same way on S.J. Res 34 and the rules are repealed, the results for American’s privacy will be disastrous.
