House Kills SOPA

Examiner, 16 July 2012

In a surprise move today, Representative Eric Cantor(R-VA) announced that he will stop all action on SOPA, effectively killing the bill. This move was most likely due to several things. One of those things is that SOPA and PIPA met huge online protest against the bills. Another reason would be that the White House threatened to veto the bill if it had passed. However, it isn’t quite time yet to celebrate, as PIPA(the Senate’s version of SOPA) is still up for consideration.

Phi Beta Iota:  SOPA is simply the latest example of a Congress that thinks nothing of abdicating its Article 1 responsibilities–every single day, Congress is betraying the public trust.  They will continue to do this until we force upon them the Electoral Reform Act of 2012.
