Net Neutrality Loses in the House

The statement from “Save the Internet” says it all:

Last night’s House vote against an amendment that would make Net Neutrality enforceable is the result of swarming lobbyists and a multi-million-dollar media campaign by telephone companies that want Congress to hand them control of the Internet.The fight now moves to the Senate, where there is stronger bi-partisan support for a bill – put forth by Senators Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) – that would protect our Internet freedom from AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth.
