What part of "Congress shall make no law" don't you understand

I think this kind of sh..tuff starts with a classic "Don't just stand there, do something" attitude which we seem to expect from our congresscritters. When combined with the first law of Washington, DC ("It's WAY more important to be seen doing something than it is to do something effective") you end up with this travesty by a gauleiter-wannabe who got her stern frame elected to Congress.
A proposal by Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Los Angeles, would never pass First Amendment muster, unless the U.S. Constitution was altered without us knowing. So Sanchez, and the 14 other lawmakers who signed on to the proposal, are grandstanding to show the public they care about children and are opposed to cyberbullying.

The measure, H.R. 1966, is labeled the Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act. It’s designed to target the behavior that led to last year’s suicide of the 13-year-old Meier.

If, btw, you feel called to write to your congresscritter and encourage him/her/it to tell Ms Sanchez too keep her gulag/lager proposal and her "overlarge nose" out of other people's business, here's a link for you!
