Net Neutrality opponents threaten to shut down the government

From Demand Progress:

Comcast's war on Net Neutrality has gone nuclear--and their friends in Congress continue to threaten to shut down the federal government to stop it.

A few weeks ago, House Republicans attached a provision blocking Net Neutrality to a must-pass spending bill that funds the federal government.1

And a key Senate committee has scheduled a vote THIS WEEK to add the same anti-Net Neutrality to their version of the bill.

They think Net Neutrality supporters will give in if we're faced with a possible government shutdown. It's up to us to prove them wrong.

Will you chip in $5 to help stop these attacks on Net Neutrality?

We've already proven that grassroots efforts can beat back Comcast's attacks on Net Neutrality.

Most people thought the FCC would never enact strong Net Neutrality rules in the first place. And last week, Comcast's allies were forced to delay a full vote in the House on the bill threatening a government shutdown over Net Neutrality.

But we need to keep flooding Congress with phone calls and make sure that voters know which senators vote for--or against--the free and open Internet.

This is the biggest threat we're facing since the FCC's historic rule went into effect. The stakes are huge. And we're counting on you to stand with us.

Will you chip in $5 to help fund the grassroots organizing we need to win?

Yes, I'll donate $5 to help defend Net Neutrality.

Thanks for standing with us.
