Congress has recessed until after the November elections without passing cybersecurity legislation, which a bipartisan chorus of prominent defense and intelligence officials says is urgently needed to protect our country's economic and national security.

Article said:

The Chamber of Commerce says that better information-sharing between the private sector and the government will keep us safe from cyberattacks. Our bill contains information-sharing provisions that have received support from industry and privacy and civil liberties advocates as well as from our nationís military and intelligence leaders.

I hope they are all working hand and hand with each other on this, they best get it right. Certainly we don't want the grid to go down, yet on the other hand I want protection to my privacy, what is left of it. I suppose they can ask FB whatever they want, many people have loaded up what makes them tick on there.

Beware Anything recommended by the criminal Lieberman! If he can, he will curb free speech!

I'm with Robert O. on this one....much effort was made to stop SOPA and PIPA, as well as laws initiated in Europe to put a lid on people's internet freedom. Petitions flew fast & furiously around the internet & social networking to garner millions of signatures immediately upon learning these bills were being pushed in Congress. So, although I can understand the importance of some "cybersecurity"---they very often stick amendments in these bills to curb the free speech of internet users.

It's a very sneaky little game they're playing in DC. They love to portray a bill by its title...and it sounds so good at first. Then they go about tacking all sorts of often unrelated issues to it---sometimes watering it down, other times adding an issue having nothing to do with the bill that couldn't pass Congress by itself. Be very careful when you ask your members of Congress to pass specific bills, because they're often "wolves in sheep's clothing."

Unaddressed "insignificant" problem for the short term ... long-term destruction as with all things let go in the beginning stages when corrections could be more easily made. Typical American.

Why has Congress recessed until after the election? There's much pressing work to be done for ALL Americans and they, as our chosen representatives, should be working for us ... or get fired.
