Let Cybersecurity Bill stay dead permanently
The Internet continues to be a political football in Washington. The latest move is that President Barack Obama may circumvent Congress by using executive orders to impose parts of the failed Cybersecurity Act, S. 2414, co-sponsored by Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. The act would have encouraged government and industry to share information on supposed “threats” to the Internet. In reality, it would have made it easier for the government to access your email and other Internet information without a warrant.
