Commerce Committee Tie
June 28, 2006
by Matt Stoller

In terms of the vote, well, we pretty much expected this, though we weren't sure whether we could keep the Dems unified. They held under intense lobbying pressure from the telecoms. I think it's fair to say that we've reversed the momentum on this issue, turning it from a little noticed 23-8 subcommittee vote in the House on April 5 to today's 11-11 tie in Commerce Committee and clearly what will be a contentious floor fight.

George Allen, maverick McCain, and Conrad Burns all voted against a free internet. Here's the amount of money they took from telecom PACs and associated individuals:

George Allen: $72,000
John McCain: $44,250
Conrad Burns: $162,600

It's important to keep the pressure up prior to the floor fight. If you live in one of these states, call your Senator and thank them/chide them for their vote on Snowe-Dorgan. I've bolded the good guys.

The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
