Who Really Opposes CISPA?

In a hearing earlier today on the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), Representative Mike Rogers dismissed the opposition to the bill. He compared opponents of the bill to a "14 year old" tweeting in a basement (watch the video).

The Internet responded - tweeting directly to Mike Rogers. Look below to see some of the many tweets. Want to see even more? Search @RepMikeRogers on Twitter.

Despite recent amendments, CISPA still features vague language that could put your personal information in the hands of military organizations like the National Security Agency. Please help oppose CISPA by calling your representative and signing our petition.
