Louisiana Congressmen Vote Against Net Neutrality

When the U.S. House of Representatives voted to defeat Rep. Ed Markey's (D-Mass) Network Neutrality amendment on Thursday evening, EVERY member of the Louisiana Congressional delegation voted against Markey's amendment.

That is, Reps. Charles Boustany, Charles Melancon, Bobby Jindal, Richard Baker, William Jefferson, Rodney Alexander and James McCrery voted in favor of giving AT&T and Verizon the legal cover to manipulate access to content on the Internet.

One thing that can now be said about our House delegation without regard to party affiliation: They really just don't get this Internet thing!

I see ya'll pulled the story about Al-Zarqawi being beaten to death by U.S. troops. Will ya'll also make a retraction post? Besides, even if he had been beaten, that would only be justice for the ruthless beheadings he carried out.
