Collins votes to breach Internet privacys

Demand Progress - Today, the Senate voted 50-48 to kill rules the FCC put in place last year to prevent internet providers from selling their customers' private information without permission. That means a green light for Comcast, Time Warner Cable, or GCI to spy on you, and sell private information about you to the highest bidder. Whether you like it or not.  Susan M. Collins, was a swing vote on this issue, and ended up siding with the big cable companies.
