In two separate statements, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) praised the passage of the FCC's new net neutrality rules. Franken called the rules an enormous victory for the American people, while Sanders said that the success of net neutrality shows that ordinary Americans can win when they stand up to corporations.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler made it official. He is going to propose the strongest rules ever to protect net neutrality. This is a big political victory for President Obama and his party but is even more gigantic for every American, who uses the Internet.
