The House has voted to take away your privacy – what do you do now?
CISPA gives the government, including military spy agencies like the National Security Agency (NSA), virtually unlimited powers to capture our personal information — medical records, private emails, financial information — all without a warrant or proper oversight.
And this is not just a Democrats vs. Republicans thing…Civil liberties groups and progressives unanimously opposed the bill, but so did Ron Paul.
President Obama warned the House that he will veto the bill because it does not protect our privacy, but they ignored his warnings.
Let’s hope he doesn’t have to. Get word to the Senate now.
