Senate Housing Bill to Require Collecting of Online Payment Information

BY Berin Szoka

While the Wall Street Journal has noted one disturbing aspect of Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CN)’s sprawling mortgage industry bailout bill (HR 3221) –the required fingerprinting of mortgage loan “originators”–Sen. Dodd and his Republican colleague Richard Shelby (R-AL) last week introduced an even more disturbing amendment (Subtitle B of S.AMDT.4983) that would require the nation’s payment systems to track, aggregate, and report information on nearly every electronic transaction to the federal government,” as reported by FreedomWorks (and noted briefly by the WSJ).

And You Wonder Why We Never Trusted Christopher Dodd

BY Connie

The grassroots organization FreedomWorks made a discovery last week that has heads spinning. Buried deep within a 630-page Senate housing legislation bill by Senator Christopher J. Dodd, former Democratic presidential candidate, is a provision that would affect the privacy not only of small businesses in America, but of the buying habits of nearly every electronic transaction. And where would it go? Straight to the federal government.

Privacy Attack: Congress wants all credit card & online purchases tracked and reported to the government.

BY admin

Thanks to www.freedomworks.org for making sure that this story gets out. It’s scary how FAR reaching this bill is. It would require all credit card companies (Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover) and online playment companies like PayPal, Amazon and Google checkout to track, aggregate and report on EVER order! The amazing fact from the article is that Senator Christopher Dodd and his merry band of privacy theives snuck this into the bill at the last minute without debate! I would HIGHLY urge you to contact your congress person to express concern.

Electronic transaction reporting requirements slipped into Housing bill

BY Julian Sanchez

A bill under consideration in Congress to bail out homeowners affected by the mortgage crisis enjoys strong bipartisan support, despite a recent White House veto threat. But the free-market advocacy group FreedomWorks is drawing attention to a provision introduced on the Senate side that has little to do with housing loans: a measure that would require credit card companies and electronic payment processors, such as PayPal, to file aggregate transaction reports with the IRS listing their total annual payments to individual merchants who receive more than $10,000 and conduct more than 200 transactions each year.

Press Release from FreedomWorks on Dodd’s Senate Housing Bill

BY Scot MacTaggart

It looks as though Senator Dodd may have just gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar…click here to read the press release from FreedomWorks, an organization that advocates small government. This could be something, or it could be nothing at all…but it’s good that FreedomWorks is doing what a lot of other people are not: reading the fine print.

Senator Chris Dodd (D) wants to track your credit card purchases

BY email6152

Senator Chriss Dodd a former democratic presidental contender inserted language into the Senate mortgage bailout bill that would require credit card merchants to submit transactions to the Feds. See article. http://www.freedomworks.org/newsroom/press_template.php?press_id=2571 I have two basic problems with this.

Rep's efforts on union dues applauded

BY Davis I. Dyer

As a public employee and constituent of State Rep. Kim Thatcher, I believe a recent "Box of Soap" commentary was off base. Mr. Vowell criticized Rep. Thatcher for exercising her democratic right to be a chief petitioner on an initiative. FreedomWorks asked Thatcher if she would co-sponsor a measure to stop using taxpayer money to collect union dues. She supports the concept and was happy to lend her name.

The RIAA Sledgehammer

The battle between the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Internet music downloaders continues to rage, and is beginning to take its toll, not just on musical mutineers, but on the Internet community as a whole. Using the broad reach of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), the RIAA is pressing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) into service, demanding they turn over the names of potential copyright violators. The problem is, however, that the RIAA is using a sledgehammer on a pin, and, unfortunately, that sledgehammer is available to virtually anyone who cares to wield it.
