This is what lobbyists are for
And i doubt that Google is the only large tech company with concerns; so I figure it's time for Larry Page to start enlisting the aid of his fellow tech CEOs, to include the one in Redmond (it's amazing how quickly rivalries can be put aside on matters of common self-interest).

Difficult
I imagine it's difficult for the politicians to know who to listen to with this debate. The people who dont want more regulation tend to know the most, but also stand to financially benefit the most if the legislation isn't implemented, so it probably seems like quite a biased opinion.

On the other hand, those calling for no more zero day exploits probably don't understand them well enough. 

I'll be watching the results of these debates closely though as the outcome could have a big impact on how secure we all are.
