US HOUSE CONFIRMS THAT MONEY = FREEDOM.
"By a 269-152 vote that fell largely along party lines, the House Republican leadership mustered enough votes to reject a Democrat-backed amendment that would have enshrined stiff Net neutrality regulations into federal law and prevented broadband providers from treating some Internet sites differently from others.
'The future Sergey Brins, the future Marc Andreessens, of Netscape and Google... are going to have to pay taxes' to broadband providers, said Rep. Ed Markey, the Massachusetts Democrat behind the Net neutrality amendment. This vote will change 'the Internet for the rest of eternity.'"
Why am I not surprised.
