Because they're on YOUR SIDE, Proud American!! If they don't know your internet habits, how can they know what's best for YOU??

Like most things in government, it's not that clear cut. Here's a third party article on what happened.
The rules that were in place basically told an ISP they could look at your browsing history until someone decided that they may be looking at "sensitive information". That's what congress pulled the plug on.

Money, money, money. It's more profits for their wealthy friends- and a lot less privacy for the American people. Republican hypocrisy at work.

100% of the Republicans voted to invade your privacy. 100% of the Democrats voted to protect your privacy. We keep telling you. Republicans are in the majority and they serve the wealthy. The wealthy want to be able to buy your complete browsing history so they can tailor advertising to you more accurately to sell you more. The wealthy then give big donations to the Republicans. Congress wins. The wealthy win. The rest of us lose. Business as usual for the GOP.
