    This is resounding news. The Senate is pushing a bill that, with 30 plus co-sponsors, can shut down the Repeal of Net Neutrality. The amazing thing is 40 co-sponsors have joined in pushing this bill and one of those is a republican representative. A little more traction is needed and the repeal of net neutrality will have no chance in hell, when it's time to enter Congress comes.

    Even if this bill isn't successful, the Democrats are going to push this issue onward into other campaigning events to annoy the republicans and say that the repeal is on their head. Those who support the bill are going to be sure there is hell to pay for those who oppose the bill to nullify the repeal.

    More information, and the numbers of the state representatives who have not decided yet, are provided in the video. This battle to retain net neutrality can still be won.

    Hopefully more Republicans will get on board when they realize that Net Neutrality is not, as Pai sold it, an "Obama-era regulation," but rather a necessary regulation that came about as US law caught up with the relatively new technology that is the modern internet.

    Or the Republicans all realize that if they oppose this bill, they lose the voters' support and thus the Government Paycheck they all receive, when they don't get voted into office again, and are made into pariahs.

    The funny thing is, they need one more republican and the remainder of the democrats to garentee a erasure of the Repeal with the bill they are proposing. With a vast majority already on the side of the bill and the major pressure being place on the republicans, this could still work yet. But there still needs to be pressure on the remaining democrats that haven't joined the fight to nullify the Repeal.

    Here is an update. All 50 democrats have signed bill to nullify the repeal. The senate just needs one more republican to join to give the bill a chance survive the vote, go to the house, and the best case scenario, get to the president.
