    Congressional inertia when they rushed thru this bill to deal with whatever issue was scaring them so badly.  This bill, or provision, came out of nowhere, for no discernible reason that we can see, and was passed lightening fast.  The questions remain, why did the US need this, and so quickly that there was essentially no debate before it was passed?  And just who benefits?  Because you just don't get this kind of thing passed this quickly without some serious money and muscle hidden behind it.
