Even if Congress had not proved itself to be dysfunctional for the past 8 years, tech companies MUST be included in the decision-making process. Government has not been a good place for the interests of citizens privacy since 2010 when the Tea Party became a force in Congress or since 2000 when authoritarians took over the White House! Citizens & tech companies need protection form the elitist idiots in government who want absolute safety & control. Beware of zealots with power. I would rather be a little unsafe than live in a Christian, theocratic thought prison!
