Did your US House Rep Sell Out the Internet?

After reading MediaGeek’s blog post about how his US Representative voted on COPE (Communications Opportunity, Promotion and Enhancement Act) I was inspired to make a list. I’m happy to say that my Representative David Price voted against it. So did Rep. Brad Miller who represents part of Wake County (Raleigh). It’ll be interesting in the future to create a graph on how they voted on all the bills set to protect and destroy Network Neutrality. COPE is one of the bad ones. Incase you were wondering voting ‘Yea’ for COPE is bad.

This controversial telecommunications legislation would permit phone and cable companies to operate Internet and other digital communications service as private networks, free of policy safeguards or governmental oversight.
