Technology bill undone by porn provision

"House Democrats pulled an $85 billion technology bill on Thursday after Republicans attached an unrelated provision that would have prevented agencies from paying the salaries of government employees caught watching pornography on the job."


Don't get me wrong, I'm not for any employer having to put up with employees who abuse government/company resources, but this is the kind of ridiculous legislation that Congress is waisting it's time on.  Abusive behavior by employees is punishable without an act of Congress nick picking what suits it's personal moral agenda.  Yea in this case it is the Republicans who would install a web cam in your bathroom to make sure you didn't use your toilet inappropriately.  They need to stop this kind of micro management.  If they honestly do not trust the agencies they fund to manage their people then they need to get rid of the managers.
