OK

While America was watching Boston this week, a Satan sandwich was being passed in Washington. The House passed CISPA, which shreds the 4th Amendment and takes away your right to online privacy. This is a big deal. Popoular outrage killed SOPA last year, so Congress is trying again. If you don't know what CISPA is, there's a good FAQ here. To sum it up:

CISPA, by contrast [to SOPA], would allow Americans' personal information to be vacuumed up by government agencies for cybersecurity and law enforcement purposes, as long as Internet and telecommunications companies agreed. In that respect, at least, its impact is broader.
Over 90 Democrats voted for this!

14 Members of the Progressive Caucus voted for this!
The progressive Caucus. The Democrats that we're supposed to be able to count on to, you know, act like Democrats.

11 Democrats co-sponsored this bill! Wow!

The overt cluelessness displayed here just boggles the mind. Co-sponsor Rep. Ruppersberger from Maryland bragged about CISPA on his website as "an important step forward"... I guess it's a step forward for collecting corporate donations.

I'm especially disappointed in some of these congressmen/women in particular. Emmanuel Cleaver voted for this "sugar coated Satan sandwich". Tammy Duckworth, after all the support we gave her. Steny Hoyer and James Clyburn, the #2 and #3 Dems in the House. Marcy Kaptur in my own state of Ohio. After this I hope Kucinich primaries her in 2014.

I would like to thank my own representative Tim Ryan for voting against this. He's one of the more underrated Democrats in the House. We're lucky to have him.

There's already a rec-listed diary about the response from Anonymous and social media on the Internet; you should check it out if you haven't already. But I thought we needed a comprehensive list of who voted for CISPA and sold us out for some campaign donations from Hollywood.

Below I listed Dems who voted for CISPA by state, along with Democratic co-sponsors and members of the "Progressive" Caucus. In case you are represented by a Republican, Republicans who voted for this are listed at the bottom, not sorted by state. I'm not quite as mad about them. We already know Republicans represent corporate interests. But the Democrats are supposed to fight for the rest of us. This time the listed Democrats and Progressives not only failed in doing that, they didn't even try.

If you don't like how your rep. voted, call or write him/her! Let them know we do not support this. And make sure your senator knows how you feel before they vote on this.

Look below the orange squiggly for the list.
