Right, people should reach Congress, get your Representatives and try to get Congress to pass a Resolution of Disapproval to stop the FCC. These cunts want to monopolise the internet, restrict freedom of speech. Don't let it happen. . . . #savenetneutrality #netneutrality #wifi #ajitpai #verizon #fuckajitpai #freedomofspeech #freedom #freeinternet #congress #usa #america #unitedstates #trump #liberals #conservatives #fcc #federalcommunicationscommission #4chan #memes #funny #memelord #edgy #edgymeme #edgelord #ifunny
Congressional Republicans unveiled the most sweeping overhaul of the nation’s tax code in three decades Friday evening with an eye toward final passage next week after two key GOP senators endorsed the legislation. "This is happening. Tax reform under Republican control of Washington is happening," House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told rank-and-file members in a conference call. "Most critics out there didn't think it could happen. ... And now we're on the doorstep of something truly historic." #theroadtotaxreform #taxreform #taxreformnow #gop #taxcuts #congress #senate #house #usa #america #taxbill #growth #economy #jobs #godblessamerica #ingodwetrust #tax #taxes #taxtimur

PLEASE HELP SAVE MY LIFE: This is incredibly important to me, please help. The GOP tax bill could trigger an AUTOMATIC $25 BILLION cut AT MINIMUM on Medicare alone. One of the primary goals for Jeff Sessions is to cut what he calls “entitlement benefits” to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, that affect veterans, retirees, those who are sick, and YOUR future health and social security. I cannot express enough the slaughter that this will affect my life. Being in hospitals for the last 3 years, now on disability and Medicare, I literally need this to survive. It has been hard enough and the threat that it may be worst? I have not even detailed the agony of what I had to do to get be alive today; 3 years, 3 states, over two dozen long term hospitalizations (recently 6 months) that led me to stop talking and walking for 4 months not bc of the actual illness but bc I could not fight the system any longer, fight health insurance, social security disability, etc just to get treatment. I was told in August that there was nothing more they can do... I was in such despair and desperation at that point, I even contacted priests, monks, energy healers, ashrams, churches... blindly hoping to find anyone, anything that could bring me to terms and find peace. I was broken. Luckily 1 doctor believed in me, and I started walking and talking again, but my insurance no longer even covers him. One of my medication this week went from $4 to $3000 bc Medicare no longer covers it. My disability benefit alone, by far doesn’t even cover it. I legally can’t work ! I am so overwhelmed of the thought that this could be any harder, that I have been getting symptoms again, my brain is shutting down in defense and my legs have been collapsing under me bc it’s no longer sending signals to the brain. PLEASE HELP. I just don’t have any fight left in me. Please go to AARP (link in bio) to protest! I will tell you my story on the unimaginable things I had to do to save myself soon. It’s not what I want to do but it if gets one more person to help, I will do it... #goptaxbill #goptaxscam #aarp #medicare #medicaid #disability #nami #congress #protest #pleasehelp #adybarkan
Another one. The era of excellence is gone #Repost @cnnpolitics ( @get_repost) • • • President Donald Trump’s judicial nominee Matthew Spencer Petersen struggled to answer basic legal questions posed to him by Republican Sen. John Kennedy. During his hearing, Petersen had to acquiesce on many occasions that his “background was not in litigation,” despite being up for a seat on the US District Court for DC. He added, “I understand the challenge that would be ahead of me if I were fortunate enough to become a district court judge.” Petersen currently serves as a commissioner on the Federal Election Commission. #capitolhill #congress #Trump #court #law #judiciary #legal #news #hearing #politics #cnn

When most countries in Europe allow for as many as 5 or 6 parties in their debates, America still has the two party duopoly. No wonder we can't get much done in Congress these days. #twoparties #government #congress #lesserevil #libertarian #conservative #liberal #democrat #republican #progressive #trump

You absolute morons, if you honestly believe that service providers would commit brand suicide by charging for stupid small shit, you're either disingenuous or just really stupid. I mean my god, I expected liberals to buy into this, but so called conservatives? That's troubling, and another reason why there needs to be a conservative atonement. Also during Monday I will actually be free so the next president should be done then.

Born into slavery, John Roy Lynch later found freedom via escape and work as a cook during the Civil War. In 1872 Lynch ran for a seat in the United States House of Representatives. He was elected, winning more than fifty percent of the popular vote. In Congress Lynch was known primarily for his support of a civil rights measure that eventually became the Civil Rights Act of 1875. During his congressional campaign in 1874, Lynch voiced concern for racist white Democrats attacks on black Republicans in Mississippi, a prelude to the bloody Mississippi gubernatorial campaign of 1875 where hundreds of black and white Republicans were killed.  Despite those violent tactics which reduced the Republican vote in the state, Lynch managed to be re-elected to Congress in 1874 and 1876. #AfricanAmerican #africanamericanhistory #blackmen #politics #civilwar #slavery #congress #AHistoryofBlackExcellence #blackexcellence #AHBE #history #facts #politicalaction #vote #mississippi
#iamprowoman: Mignon Clyburn, Jessica Rosenworcel ( @jrosenworcel), Democratic FCC Commissioners — Yesterday the FCC ruled 3-2 to end net neutrality. Net neutrality, in short, gives the people more affordable access to the internet than what it would be if there was no net neutrality. Without net neutrality, internet service providers (ISPs) would have the power to discriminate by charging extra for certain services such as social media and video streaming (YouTube, Netflix etc). Swipe to see the price breakdown. — Mignon and Jessica were the two who voted against repealing net neutrality, both sharing similar thoughts in their powerful dissenting statements. Both called the process of putting net neutrality up for a vote corrupt with Mignon stating that not one story regarding net neutrality from a consumer was included in the order and Jessica breaking down the comments the FCC received which included 2 million from stolen identities, half a million from Russian addresses, and 50,000 complaints missing. — The fight is nowhere near over. What it boils down to is YOU and who you choose to put in Congress. If your state’s seat is not up for election, email or call them to let them know how you feel about net neutrality. If your state’s seat is up for election, do your research and make sure you vote for the person that truly has the best intentions at heart. You are the difference. — #iamprowoman💪: celebrating the professional woman and those for woman
Make sure you call #congress and tell them to oppose #netneutrality repeal we can still win this people, tell them that next time you vote you’ll keep their decision in mind

The UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston has just finished his two week tour of the US. He has released a scathing attack on Republicans and US president Trump accusing them of creating a tax plan that will hugely increase the already large disparities between rich and poor, he accuses Trump and his party of consciously distorting the shape of American society in a “bid to become the most unequal society in the world”. Alston warned that Republicans had declared the intent to slash crucial welfare programs next year in order to pay for some of the $1.5tn tax cuts could cost American lives. “The consequences for an already overstretched and inadequate system of social protection are likely to be fatal for many programs, and possibly also for those who rely upon them,” #us #usa #trump #republican #whitehouse #democrats #inequality #incomeinequality #wealth #wealthinequality #welfare #republicantaxplan #obama #unitednations #extremeinequality #washingtondc #bernie2020 #berniesanders #wallstreet #congress #tyt #socialism #capitalism
How does Netflix feel about Disney’s acquisition of Fox’s entertainment sector? For $52 billion, Disney has purchased all of Fox’s intellectual property outside of the broadcasting, sports, and news rights. This is a long term strategy in competing against Netflix when Disney’s streaming service goes live in 2019. What do you think? Will the investment pay off in the end? Would you like to see Deadpool face off against Thor? Let us hear your thoughts! • Also, FCC chairman Ajit Pai and the FCC has voted to scrap the net neutrality rules Obama and his administration enacted in 2015. This will empower internet service providers to choose what data travels at what speed through its network, changing the governing rules for internet entirely. Net neutrality rules prior to the vote prohibited ISP’s from restricting speeds from specific websites or rival organizations. Despite enormous protest, the vote was passed by the FCC board 3-2, with 3 republicans voting yes and 2 democrats voting against. • House Republican Paul Ryan may be retiring from Congress! Rumors are that the Speaker, who’s been in Congress since 1999 may retire after his current term ends in 2018 after being the Speaker of the House for 3 years. Ryan has publicly spoke that he does not want to spend his entire career in Washington, so there may be truth to this rumor.
