Senators introduce bill that would allow US to disconnect the Internet

I  was reading an article on The Raw Story tonight. The more I read, the more enraged I became. 

"Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), along with one Republican and Democratic senator, introduced a bill late last week that would allow the President to effectively disconnect the internet by emergency decree.
The Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act would allow the President to disconnect Internet networks and force private websites to comply with broad cybersecurity measures.Future US presidents would have their Internet "kill switch" powers renewed indefinitely."

You must read the rest of the article at The Raw Story.
