In comparison, this measure seems to have been abandoned without much fight. I can't help but wonder why.
The GOP realized that this is not a policy that’s going to help them keep the Senate in 2016. Right now the GOP is dominated by old Republicans who want the party to attract young voters, so ginning this issue up into a war wasn’t worth pissing off the young voters. The other important group in the GOP are the sham libertarians who are trying to bring wealthy techies into their camp. Going to war over net neutrality would halt Rand Paul’s advance into silicon valley. All the money the telcos and cable companies can throw at the GOP isn’t really worth pissing off all the people who want uninterrupted streams from Chaturbate and Russian pirate TV streams.
