Representative Issa - No New Tech Policy

Congressman Darrell Issa has proposed new legislation that would ban Congress from passing legislation that would effect the Internet for the next two years. Many are skeptical of his motivation. From the USNews article:
Wednesday, Issa was back on Reddit, where he held an "Ask Me Anything" session and proposed a bill that would ban regulations on the Internet for two years. "Together, we can make Washington take a break from messing w/the Internet," he wrote. 
But some Redditors weren't buying what Issa was selling this time around. 
The first question the congressman received scolded him: "Hey Darrell, why did you vote for CISPA?" As did the second: "Why the sudden reversal? You were a co-sponsor of CISPA, but now you don't want any internet regulation. Did anything happen, say maybe about three weeks ago to the day, that caused you to change your mind?"
