Opposition to CISPA Increases: Free Market Coalition and Ron Paul Come Out Against Bill

BY MARK M. JAYCOX, Electronic Frontier Foundation

The recent Week of Action against CISPA, the dangerously vague 'cybersecurity' bill , highlights the growing bi-partisan disapproval of the many provisions that would gut all existing privacy laws. Internet users across the political spectrum voiced their concerns with how the bill allows companies to spy on users, filter content, and transfer personal information to agencies like the NSA.

This week, the Free Market Coalition, a coalition that includes FreedomWorks, the American Conservative Union, the Liberty Coalition, and Americans For Limited Government, reiterated problems EFF has mentioned in numerous articles. They are joined by Ron Paul, who described the bill as "Big Brother writ large." The Free Market Coalition sent a letter to Congress decrying the broad immunity provisions, unprecedented government information sharing, and the ability to supersede current federal and state privacy law. Among others, the groups join DemandProgress, Fight for the Future, Free Press, and the White House in expressing disapproval about core problems of the bill.

EFF also shares these concerns. That's why we encourage other groups to join our Voices of Opposition list. In addition, we hope individuals will continue to tweet and send emails to their member representative to make it clear that the government has no right to spy on our private lives.
