Rep. Jordan should help repeal the FCC order

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter to the editor was written by Tim Adam of Wakeman.

In a report from Thursday's Reflector we again find Congressman Jim Jordan working to stop the Mueller investigation, which has already charged four with crimes related to Russian government ties to the Trump presidential campaign.

From his House committee post, Jordan is again grilling a government official about what seems a molehill he hopes to make into a mountain. This time Jordan is raising a stink about old, private text messages that were negative towards candidate Donald Trump — a matter that had been taken care of last summer.

The day after Jordan's latest committee grilling, Trump's FCC took away our internet freedom. The commission passed an order to kill net neutrality and hand total control of your internet connection to your ISP, be it Verizon, AT&T, Frontier, Armstrong, or any other.

Jordan is the founder of something called the House "Freedom" Caucus. Instead of wasting time with his committee grillings, he could actually do something important for individual freedom. Jordan has eagerly employed the Congressional Review Act to repeal Obama administration health, safety and internet privacy rules. He should now join his freedom-loving colleagues in using that power to repeal the FCC order.
