ISPs ask lawmakers to kill privacy rules, and they’re happily obliging
Wheeler-era FCC rules that protect Web browsing data could be overturned.
Sorry but the GOP is not the party of the people… they are the party of big business. Clearly both parties get their wheels greased by politicians but one is so blatantly opposite the good of the people it's not even funny.
A coalition of consumer advocacy groups recently urged Congress to let the privacy rules remain in place.
"Broadband ISPs, by virtue of their position as gatekeepers to everything on the Internet, have a largely unencumbered view into their customers’ online communications," the groups said in a letter. "That includes the websites they visit, the videos they watch, and the messages they send." The FCC's privacy rules "empower users and give them a say in how their private information is used," they said.
