Senator McCain Nixes Internet Freedom

Posted By on Fri, Jun 30, 2006 at 1:46 PM

From MoveOn.org:

John McCain, was the deciding vote AGAINST Internet freedom during a key vote this week in the Senate Commerce Committee.

The committee voted 11 to 11 on the Snowe/Dorgan proposal to preserve Net Neutrality—one vote shy of passage. John McCain voted to let companies like AT&T put tollbooths on the Internet and gain more control over what you see and do online. The fight to preserve the free and open Internet now moves to the full Senate.

Please call Sen. McCain today and say "shame on you" for opposing the Snowe-Dorgan Internet freedom proposal. Tell him to oppose any bill in the full Senate that doesn't protect Net Neutrality. Here is the number:

Senator John McCain, Phone: 202-224-2235

Senator McCain took $44,250 in contributions this election cycle from big telecommunications companies, according to www.opensecrets.org, and then sided with them in (the) vote.
