Before leaving for recess, Senate Republicans blocked a White House-backed measure aimed at protecting U.S. computer networks from attack.
"I think it's been difficult for our Republican colleagues for the Chamber of Commerce not to see this as a national security issue," Sen. Whitehouse told the Alley.
