(RightWing.org) – New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is, apparently, trying to fight for internet privacy protections. She has introduced a new bill that would create a federal agency to enforce the protection of consumer privacy on the internet. In a recent Medium.com post, she outlined the proposal and the underlying principles.
As this Twitter user points out, part of the problem of internet privacy rights is the fact that Obama-era Democrats enabled tech giants like Google to capitalize on the public’s digital information.
Sen. Gillibrand proposes a new government agency to protect internet privacy @CNBC The Democratic Congress allowed these company's to invade our privacy during the Obama years. They gave Google & others carte blanche to operate freely. https://t.co/F0Grv6jd9b

So, it’s unsure if Gillibrand’s intentions to protect our data are sincere. According to the bill, the Senate would confirm a Director appointed by the President to watch over the new agency for five years. To ensure fairness, the President would have the power to remove this individual if they fail to live up to their duties.
What do you think about this new attempt to protect our digital data?
