Twenty-nine Republicans voted against CISPA. If all Democrats had been united in opposition to CISPA it would not have got out of the House. Unfortunately, the Democratic caucus was split right down the middle. Even House Democratic leadership was split: Hoyer and Clyburn voted aye while Pelosi and Becerra voted nay.
More troubling is that a number of members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus voted for the bill. Most voted nay, but these CPC members were for the bill:
William “Lacy” Clay
Eddie Bernice Johnson
Ann McLane Kuster
CISPA now goes on to the U.S. Senate. It died there last year and we need to make sure the same thing happens this year. Please let your U.S. senators know you want them to oppose CISPA. If you are represented by one of the above CPC members, please register your disapproval with a phone call, fax, or email. If your U.S. Rep isn't on the list above, check the roll call to find out how he or she voted.
