This week, the House of Representatives voted to pass a law that would allow internet service providers to sell America’s browser history. On Wednesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert railed against Congress for even proposing such a law.
“Anybody here use the Internet? Might want to knock that off. Congress has now voted to allow internet providers to sell your web browsing history,” Colbert began, adding, “I’ve got nothing to hide, I burned my computer this morning.”
“This is what’s wrong with Washington, D.C.,” he said. “I guarantee you there is not one person, not one voter of any political stripe anywhere in America who asked for this.”
“Taking the side of a cable company? The only thing less popular would be if they passed a bill allowing traffic jams to call you during dinner to give you Gonorrhea.”
