    I'm disgusted with all my representatives who all voted YEA on this bill. I contacted all of them in advance and believe this was purely party politics and and the big money servers give them.

    Called Neal Dunn's office to tell them that I opposed this bill. And then he votes yes.

    Very disappointed with your vote Representative Lance. A consumer's private information should not be up for sale to a 3rd party. Sad to see this vote despite the efforts to contact you by phone, fax and email.

    As my representative I am upset that you sold my privacy and information online to the highest bidder. This is un-America and unacceptable. Get ready to be voted out. We will not forget your actions now.

    How dare you vote yes on this! This is beyond transparent. How do you care more about companies than your constituents' privacy and consent? You're not voting what I want, that's for sure.

    Mike Burgess you are going to be out of a job soon. You voted for something that will not benefit your constituents and will in fact give internet service providers license to take advantage and exploit us. You answer to us sir, not the president.

    I'm sad to see you sold your constituents out to the communication companies. So much for privacy.

    If ISPs want to sell my information like apps, then they should charge me the same as apps. Nothing!

    Not only will this enable ISPs to leverage our personal information for financial gain, there is also no requirement to notify customers or law enforcement in the event of a breach of personal information which might result in fraud, identity theft, etc.

    I attended an online town hall and thought that you made some sense and was willing to give you a chance. You messed up big time, Ryan, when you voted to give big business the right to track and share my internet information. This is one of those bills that really demonstrate where your allegiances are, and they are obviously not with your constituents since you do not value our privacy. It's a good thing you stated you don't care about being re-elected.

    Ms. Walters it's time to be constituents before party lines. I wonder if you read these or just follow the crowd. I'd like a little bit of privacy that is left to be protected as this will also effect the safety of our children.

    So, Barbara, how much did you get for selling our information? I'm simply curious what your constituents' privacy is worth to you.

    Very disappointed that Rep. Dent voted in favor of this bill. One would think her Congressman would want to protect the privacy of his constituents. This is shameful.

    Once again, verifiable proof that the current GOP doesn't care about average citizens. Vote them ALL out!

    How dare you take away our privacy?! For profit! This is unforgivable! We will remember everyone who voted yes… And they all have a big, fat "R" next to their name. We're coming for you…
