Senator Pryor and “Net Neutrality” and the National Debt
On Thursday, U.S. Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) stood with President Obama and voted against a conservative effort to prevent the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from regulating the Internet through the enforcement of “net neutrality” rules. As a result, the bill failed 52-46.
The Heritage Foundation said the FCC’s new rules would “give the government a role in deciding how content is treated on the Web, potentially threatening the free flow of information."
The U.S. House already passed a similar measure in April to override the FCC’s “net neutrality” rules. Why does Senator Mark Pryor support a federal regulatory overreach that has the potential to stifle innovation and freedom of speech? Click here to contact Senator Pryor!
Has Washington Cut Enough?
Despite an exploding $14.9 Trillion national debt, Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) seems to think Washington has tightened its belt enough. When recently asked if Congress should cut spending, Senator Pryor said, “I don’t think we need to do more cuts this year.” What do you think? Click here to watch the video.
