Congress Can Save the Internet
The White House will end U.S. oversight at month?s end, unless lawmakers step in.

President Obama wants this to be the last month of an open, uncensored internet guaranteed by the U.S. government. His plan to end American stewardship would hand new power to authoritarian governments offended by the internet as we know it.

The good news is it appears congressional leaders have agreed to rescue the internet in time to prevent the Sept. 30 expiration of U.S. oversight. Sen. Ted Cruz, who has pushed hard against the plan since it was announced two years ago, told me last week he?s ?cautiously optimistic? legislators will block it through a rider to the federal budget: ?The basic proposition of keeping the internet free has united Republicans across the spectrum and should also unite Democrats with Republicans.?

This pathetic Republican Congress cannot be counted on for anything.  They are worthless.

And the UGLY TRUTH is that Donald Trump is NOT bringing them down, they are bringing him down.

Trump lost some credibility with me when he endorsed the horrible, horrible Speaker Paul Ryan.   He is as worthless as they get!
