America leads the world in innovation and technology. Yet, there are some in Washington who are putting our success at risk by attacking internet companies for political expediency. Seven out of the top 10 internet companies in the world were founded in the U.S. Stifling innovation through baseless new regulations would be turning our back on what makes our internet economy and technology companies the envy of the world.
