the sly Obama administration opposes CISPA because it thwarts their effort singularly control the entire country. It's tedious but, read the White House cyber-security proposal released around this time last year. Their proposal gives the dictator...whoops, sorry...President, the power to shut down; the government, the cell towers, the electrical grid, financial sector, transportation, everything. And, "volunteer", and "privacy" are based upon the dictator's...sorry...determination of "compliance". Obama's problem with CISPA is that it doesn't give him enough power!

Civil liberties advocates loudly protested the bill, claiming it will give government too much access to individuals’ personal information. The Obama administration is threatening to veto it if it makes it through both chambers of Congress. Congressional sponsors scrambled to amend the bill this week in order to ensure its passage. CISPA is supported by Facebook, Microsoft and other online giants.

H.R. 3523 will allow websites to share users’ personal information with the federal government in the name...
