Representative Marsha Blackburn supports roll back of Net Neutrality

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted Thursday to roll back Obama-era internet regulations called “net neutrality.” I fully support FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s decision on this. Let me tell you why.

There’s a lot of confusion about the term “net-neutrality,” which leads consumers to believe that before 2015 it was difficult to have free and fair access to the internet. This is not the case. Were you able to access the internet before 2015? Could you access websites for free? The answer is most likely yes. FCC regulations were not needed then, and they aren’t needed now. But there are some big internet issues we need to solve.

Tennessee Titans Series History against Arizona Cardinals

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – This week’s game renews a rare rivalry between the Tennessee Titans and the Arizona Cardinals. Of all opponents that have been in existence since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, the Cardinals have played the Oilers/Titans the fewest amount of times—10 games total. The Cardinals lead the series 6-4, including a win in the most recent matchup in 2013.

There have been just three Titans-Cardinals games (2005 and 2009) between the clubs in their current incarnations—the Cardinals played in St. Louis from 1960-87 (they played in Chicago prior to that), and the Titans were the Houston Oilers (1960-96) and Tennessee Oilers (1997-98) prior to taking their current name in 1999.
