When Facebook’s website and mobile app suffered a major crash on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) pounced on the opportunity to exploit the event to push a political agenda.
With Facebook users incapacitated and seeking answers, Pelosi quickly took to Twitter to promote Democrats’ plan to spend at least $40 billion of taxpayer money to provide access to affordable, high-speed internet to every home in America via their “A Better Deal on Universal High-Speed Internet” initiative:
“Is Facebook down for you? For far too many Americans, not having access to high-speed internet means it might as well as well always be.”
“It’s time to make sure all families have access to high-speed internet. #ABETTERDEAL”
