Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) expressed his support for controversial cybersecurity legislation, calling it a "common-sense solution" that will help protect America's economy.
"The private sector owns and operates most of the networks under assault. So instead of imposing new mandates, or having government agencies monitor or police private networks, [CISPA] helps private-sector job creators defend themselves and their users," he said. "The House is already on record here; we voted last year to stop federal bureaucrats from regulating the Internet," he said. "The government has no business monitoring or regulating what you do online."
