Pelosi: We Need To Find A Better Solution Than SOPA
from the good-for-her dept
Ever thought there would be a policy issue that both Michele Bachmann and Nancy Pelosi agree on? Turns out it’s that SOPA is a terrible idea. Pelosi has stated on her Twitter feed that we “need to find a better solution than SOPA” in response to a question from another Twitter user.
This is pretty big. Very few people expected that Pelosi would take a direct position on SOPA at all, but the fact that she’s publicly stating it’s a bad idea is a pretty huge sign of the impact that yesterday’s widespread opposition to SOPA had. Whether you like Pelosi or not (and I recognize she brings out strong feelings in some people — similar to Bachmann, though at different extremes), having her come out against SOPA is a pretty clear sign that the bill is in trouble.
Update: And Darrell Issa responds on Twitter as well:
If even we agree…
