WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) voted this afternoon in favor of reversing the repeal of net neutrality.
“There are certain values that need to be preserved with respect to the internet. They include no illegal censorship, no throttling and no discrimination. Nearly 20% of all Americans and 22% of all Louisianans have one choice for an internet service provider who can deliver adequate upload and download speeds. Basically, they don’t have a choice,” said Sen. Kennedy. “The vote came down to one thing and one thing only: How much do you trust your cable company? I want to be able to trust everyone, but I believe verification is necessary for a free and open internet. I also believe in love, but I still own a handgun.”
