Online transaction monitoring - Contact Grassley

First, I apologize for the posting hiatus, but in case you didn't notice...


I had all these great ideas for posts about what to do and then I'd realize the place was flooded out.

Anyway, this post has nothing to do with stuff to do in Iowa City. This post is about Chuck Grassley being a dick, again.

This time around, ol' Chuck is pushing a housing bill with a buried provision that will require paypal, amazon, and other online services to report details of each and every online transaction to the federal government. As chairman of the Finance Committee, he is in position to get this bill to the floor.

The privacy implications of this provision are very serious, and there isn't a plan in place to deal with those risks, or to limit what the federal goverment can do with this information.

You can read more about it here:
