Re: And this is why

The tech industry beat Clipper in the 90s and will beat this too. The US economy is quite dependent on the tech industry for all its growth, and while politicians want to be seen to be doing "stuff" to stop terrorists, they aren't going to do something that the whole tech industry says will hurt US competitiveness and cause the center of the industry to leave Silicon Valley for a country with less crazy lawmakers.
