Mitch McConnell

While this protection remains strong today, from time to time Congress and other parts of the federal government still attempt - and sometimes succeed - in limiting speech. Political debate is among the most important democratic traditions of our nation and a hallmark of any free society. We must continue to preserve the right of all Americans to express their views.

I will not support efforts to restrict free speech, silence political voices, and limit the free flow of information through legislative "fixes" like the so-called 'Fairness Doctrine." Unlike the totalitarian state depicted in Orwell's 1984, ours is not a state controlled by a Ministry of Truth with a speech police telling our citizens what we can and cannot say and hear. Let's keep it that way.
