    Happy outcome, for now. They will try again sooner or later no doubt.

    Agreed, and the level of false propaganda (read lies) spread by the republicans especially is ridiculous. I know the reasons why there are no legal consequences to political promises, but the type of straight up lying used in this case by some politicians has to be curbed somehow.

    I bet they already have since they haven't released the 300 pages of regulations they're making.

    How do you know that, have you read the (unreleased) FCC rules yet? My bet is that the internet community at large is screwed.
