Online Freedom of Speech Act (H.R. 1606)

We all need to be aware of what could happen in the House of Reprehensibles this week. Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R., Tex.) and Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.) have introduced a bill called Online Freedom of Speech Act (H.R. 1606), which would alter federal election law to exclude Internet communications from the definition of "public communication." In practice, the bill would complicate, if not prevent, government use of campaign finance law to control the Internet – Read the article at NRO Online

I can remember the ‘Hush Rush’ attempts in the early 90s that the Dems tried to push through. And thank God those attempts failed. But the fact that a Republican is on the side of legislating censorship is absolutely amazing. This is bad for everyone folks - Dems and Republicans.

Write or call your US House Rep and tell him or her to Vote No to HR 1606!

Bloggers Beware – the speech that is censored if this bill passes will be ours!

POST UPDATE - The Bill Failed In The House. It's not over yet. Read
