Another Investment Opportunity for Congress

Love it when Europeans think they have a handle on how politics work in the USA.

What this means is: now every member of Congress will have one of their buddies start up a cybersecurity firm (which of course, they themselves will heavily invest in). Then the senator or representative will hire this firm and funnel excess cash to their friends.

They really don't care if their website or network gets pwned or not. They just want to be able to funnel money so they can make money.
