Sen. Chuck Schumer is no fan of the lifting of Net Neutrality rules, tweeting today that the Internet “may start to resemble a toll road, with the highest bidders cruising along private ‘fast lanes’ while the rest of us inch along a single, traffic choked public lane”:

Yay! Chuck Schumer and the Democrat party is advising the immediate abolishment of all US toll roads. It’s about time. Thanks, Chuck. https://t.co/GRXcDvQGZO

Of note, there are lots of toll roads in New York, too:

Well, to be fair to Chuck, he probably doesn’t know much about toll roads anyway:
