FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Passage of the Save the Internet Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the House’s passage today of the so-called Save the Internet Act, Patrick Hedger, FreedomWorks Foundation Director of Policy, commented:

“The internet is alive and well and Democrats are just beating a dead horse. Connections, speeds, and investment are all up following the rollback of Title II and the internet was fine before Title II. Treating the internet like a public utility is the equivalent of swatting a fly with a bazooka. It’s hard to call ourselves a free country when one party insists on going after essentially hypothetical issues with the most aggressive government regulations and controls on the books.”
