Rogers (US Congress - ALEC) - Sponsored CISPA

The House of Representatives passed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2013 (CISPA) by a vote of 288-127, a nearly veto-proof majority. It now heads to the Senate, where it died last year.

President Obama has threatened to veto the bill in its current form.
ZDNet‘s Zach Whittaker explains:

    For those out of the loop, CISPA will allow private sector firms to search personal and sensitive user data of ordinary U.S. residents to identify this so-called “threat information,” and to then share that information with each other and the U.S. government — without the need for a court-ordered warrant.

Of course, as we’ve noted all along, all attempts at cybersecurity legislation have always been about money. Mainly, money to big defense contractors aiming to provide the government with lots of very expensive ‘solutions’ to the cybersecurity ‘problem’ — a problem that still has not been adequately defined beyond fake scare stories. Just last month, Rogers accidentally tweeted (and then deleted) a story about how CISPA supporters, like himself, had received 15 times more money from pro-CISPA groups than the opposition had received from anti-CISPA groups.
Always been about money - always been about corporate revenue
More money for corporations?
Rogers?  Who is Rogers?
15 times more money from pro-CISPA groups

From the Daily Caller
The bill — sponsored by House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers and Ranking Member Dutch Ruppersberger — is intended to allow for private companies to share cyberthreat information with the federal government.

Supporters have argued that the bill allows for private sector information to be shared with the federal government on a voluntary basis.
Look behind the curtain folks!
More money for corporations?
    Mike Rogers – ALEC ALUMNI
    Just because Ruppersberger has a D behind his name
    - doesn't make him a representation of, for, by the people "D".

The American Legislative Exchange Council, increasing the revenues of ALEC corporations for 40 years, by manipulating the free-market with ALEC "model legislation" – becausetheycan.

Always been about money - always been about corporate revenue
