Net neutrality victory: DC court backs full rules

While that's all true, if Trump wins he gets to make an appointment to the FCC panel, which swings it from 3-2 democrat to 3-2 republican. They will likely reverse course on this and other things that it did under Wheeler. If Clinton wins then net neutrality is likely to become the law of the land.

That's the problem when the two sides in congress are so polarized that they refuse to cooperate on anything. They essentially abdicate their power to the executive branch, or at least as much of that power as the courts will allow them to have. Compromise has become a dirty word in congress, especially on the republican side, and you can bet that if Trump wins the democrats will be just as obstructionist. The last eight years have made that the "new normal".
