It seems that the folks in Washington DC have their own agendas. Shock. The Ex-Im Bank in the House, CISA in the Senate. See a common theme here?

Got to knock all this stuff out before the Holidays you know.

After rejecting all the good privacy amendments to CISA, the Senate has now officially passed the legislation by a 74 to 21 vote. About the only “good” news is that the vote is lower than the 83 Senators who voted for cloture on it last week. Either way, the Senate basically just passed a bill that will almost certainly be used mainly for warrantless domestic surveillance, rather than any actual cybersecurity concern.

If you’d like to know which Senators voted for greater domestic surveillance, here’s your list:

  • Alexander (R-TN)

People call your representatives, senators, and congress, and let them know how you feel. If this bill has been passed, then that means that the Senate will pass the TPP bill as well. Before it’s too late, call them all and tell them NO on TPP, and voice your concerns, anger, and frustration on the CISA bill being passed.
