What our Congress is doing

One more law.....

Senators introduce bill to restrict Internet, cable, and satellite radio recording

And, this isn't just the Democrats. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Joseph Biden (D-DE), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Yesterday, Sen. John Sununu (R-NH) announced legislation that would prevent the FCC from creating exactly the same kind of technology mandates that the PERFORM Act would require. At the time, Sen. Sununu said that "misguided requirements distort the marketplace by forcing industry to adopt agency-blessed solutions rather than allow innovative and competitive approaches to develop."

Lindsey Graham and Lamar Alexander don't count as "Republican support".

It's more accurate to say that the bill enjoys bipartisan support, but that the Republicans are against it. This happens a lot, actually.

Perhaps the majority of Republicans do not 'support' the bill, but those two Republicans are 'sponsors', which means they give their approval for the bill.

American Heritage Dictionary - 3. A legislator who proposes and urges adoption of a bill.

Hopefully, there won't be enough support for the bill.
