Did Your Rep Sell Out the Internet?

You might be surprised, though it might not be pleasant. My own Congressional Rep, Tim Johnson voted in favor of the COPE Act (even just hours after having skin cancer surgery). His vote isn’t a surprise, he’s a real milquetoast Republican that tends to sway with the party most of the time.

But some Chicagoans might be surprised that otherwise progressive congressmen like Jesse Jackson Jr. and Bobby Rush both voted in favor of COPE, too.

Click here to see how your representative voted on the COPE Act.

With regard to the Markey Amendment to add Net Neutrality to the COPE Act, Jackson did vote in favor of that, but Rush did not. Neither did Tim Johnson, but, again, I’m not surprised. How did your representative vote on Net Neutrality?
