RANT: Congress failed; good!


The six tech policy problems Congress failed to fix this year
On tech issues, the partisan divide isn’t so wide. Yet nothing happened.

*** begin quote ***

One: Pass anti-troll patent reform

Two: Reform ECPA, and finally grant due process for e-mail privacy

Three: Reform our vague anti-hacking laws

Four: Bring out-of-control intel agencies to heel

Five: Do something on immigration

Six: Pass a strong, permanent “right to unlock” bill 

*** end quote ***

“Do Nothing” Congress and deadlock between House and Senate / President is “good”.

Look at what happens when the R’s get control, we get “Homeland Security” and the TSA.

Look at what happens when the D’s get their way: Sarbox, NIJA mortgages, and bailouts galore.

Even if the current situation is “un en dur able”, they can make it worse.
