Sign the Petition to

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the U.S. Senate

We can’t let Mitch McConnell give his Big Cable donors total control over the internet to drown out our voices. The Senate must pass the Save the Internet Act and restore Net Neutrality -- preserving a free and open internet for all of us.

Signed,

How this will help

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is once again abusing his power, siding with his corporate donors and obstructing what the vast majority of Americans want. His target? Net Neutrality.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is once again abusing his power, siding with his corporate donors and obstructing what the vast majority of Americans want. His target? Net Neutrality. 

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the Save the Internet Act with a bipartisan vote. It's a clean, simple bill that does just one thing: restores Net Neutrality nationwide to ensure a fair and open internet. 

Now, the bill is supposed to head to the Senate for an up-or-down vote, but McConnell won't even give it a fair shot. He's blocking any action, claiming it's "dead on arrival in the Senate" -- even though a bipartisan Senate majority voted last year to restore Net Neutrality. 

In our 21st century democracy, everyone needs access to the internet. But without Net Neutrality -- the baseline principle of equal treatment online -- huge companies like Verizon and Comcast can intentionally block, slow down, or charge money to allow access to specific websites and online content. 

And Big Cable companies know they have Mitch McConnell in their pocket. In the last election cycle, McConnell received $99K from Comcast, $66K from Verizon, and $49K from AT&T -- so it's no surprise that he'll use his position to do their bidding and kill this bill. 

We need a nationwide outcry in support of the Save the Internet Act. Add your name now and tell the Senate to give the bill a fair vote!
