The Equal Rights Amendment was sent to Congress in 1972 with a seven-year time frame to get 38 states to ratify it. The goal was not reached and an extension was approved by Congress. That second goal was not reached and, at that time, the supporters of the ERA agreed it was dead. However, in today’s crazy world it has been resurrected and its proponents are saying they only need three states to ratify it in order for the ERA to become part of the US Constitution – totally ignoring the deadline has passed twice and five states have rescinded their original approval!!

This is a compromise bill supported by House Speaker Paul Ryan and does not address many issues that would end the illegal immigration problems!
On December 14, 2017 the FCC voted to repeal the Obama era net neutrality rules which stifled the internet. As now FCC chairman Ajit Pai noted back in 2015 in voicing his opposition to the rules changes, ““This is not only a radical departure from the bipartisan, market-oriented policies that have served us so well for the last two decades.” He further noted the FCC was flip-flopping on rules they had just put in places months earlier simply because President Obama wanted net neutrality enacted.
