CISPA- What is it and How would it effect Online Privacy?

So while everyone was glued to the Tel-I-Vision engrossed in the horrible tragedy of the Boston Marathon. Some were trying to sneak through something called: C.I.S.P.A -Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. This is what we have learned from the ACLU's website when researching, click link to see full write up. 

Over the last few months, more than 50,000 ACLU supporters signed our petition to the president urging him to veto CISPA if it made it to his desk. Not only did the president hear your calls – yesterday, he answered them with a resounding win for your privacy and civil liberties and threatened to veto CISPA, the dangerous privacy-busting cybersecurity bill.
The president's veto threat echoed many of our concerns, and those that he raised last year when he threatened to veto CISPA 1.0. We have long warned that CISPA threatens Americans' privacy and civil liberties by allowing for companies to share our private information, like our internet records and the content of our emails, with the government. Yesterday's veto threat makes it clear that in spite of recent amendments, CISPA still fails to adequately protect our privacy
