Trump signed it into law. It's official now.
And I feel like I should point this out, because this bill has been framed as a dispute between left-wing and right-wing philosophies. It's not.
This is a deeply unpopular bill among both liberals and conservatives. According to a YouGov poll
, just 6% of respondents agreed that ISPs should be able to sell its customers' information without first getting their customers' permission. Six percent. That's a "Hitler did nothing wrong" grade unpopular opinion.
The Republican "representatives" who voted for this bill - from the House to the Senate to the Presidency - just violated the will of their constituents. The question is, knowing this, are these voters going to withdraw their support? Or will they roll over and take it?
