Adi Robertson, senior reporter at The Verge, discusses the move this week by Senate Democrats to try and overturn the FCC's repeal of net neutrality. Democrats filed a resolution that would require a majority vote in Congress to pass.

It faces the biggest challenge in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Robertson weighs in on the likelihood of it passing and also discusses what various tech companies stand to lose if Democrats are successful.

She also talks about how extreme the response has been to the repeal of net neutrality, noting that she is not surprised how involved people have been in the fight. She says the battle for a free and open internet is one that consumers and internet companies have been fighting for decades.
