Congresswoman Bustos Statement on President Trump Signing Measure to Undermine Internet Privacy

WASHINGTON – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos denounced President Trump’s late night decision to sign into law S.J. Res. 34, a Republican led measure that allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to sell the internet search history and online activity of their customers to the highest bidder.

“We are more than 70 days into the Trump administration and the only thing they can point to as an accomplishment is changing the rules to let internet providers sell your personal online activity to the highest bidder without your knowledge or consent,” said Congresswoman Cheri Bustos. “President Trump campaigned on a promise of creating jobs, not undermining the privacy of hardworking families. So I have one very simple question for President Trump: Since you have so much time to golf, tweet and sign away the privacy of virtually all Americans, why don’t you have a jobs plan?”
