Congress passes the privacy-destroying Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act

EDIT: Title is wrong...should be "House" instead of "Congress"
-----

Such complete and utter bullshit.

Republicans:
  • 206 Yes
  • 28 No

Democrats:
  • 42 Yes
  • 140 No

The House of Representatives is the most right-leaning branch of government, especially when compared to the U.S. Senate and the POTUS.

So give them this victory.

This bill will never pass both the senate and get signed by Obama.

As a bonus, this whole episode will help confirm the right is out-of-touch and anti-youth.

I hope Sen. Wyden is up for a filibuster. This **** needs to die in the senate. I really don't trust Obama vetoing it after that 180 he pulled on the NDAA. And no, funding the troops does not trump the constitution.

Agreed...and frankly, even if Obama is threatening a veto, I won't believe it until he does it.

And you know what? If this fails, they'll do it again.

You can do that when you edit a post. Just hit the "advanced" button.

Sure it will pass Obama, he'll just leave a little note about disagreeing with it and then sign it anyway.

Congress hasn't passed this bill. Only the House. The Senate still has to act. If they pass it, then it has passed Congress. Then the President can veto it or not. If he does. Then it goes back to see if a veto can be overridden.

Maybe the Republicans were pulling the Nancy Pelosi trick and did the old "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it".

If this passes, I wonder how many of those Republicans who voted for it will complain about big government taking away their privacy.

You need to look hard at the earmarks before you can predict whether or not it will pass the Senate or get a veto from Obama. The bills these days are almost always secondary to the pork...

Do you hate internet freedom? Are you pissed SOPA got shot down by those hipsters? Good news! The American government has just the thing for you! CISPA (also known as H.R. 3523, The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, and SOPA MK II Electric Boogaloo) is the newest great idea **** out by the man in Washington currently awaiting approval in the Senate.
