Lawmakers who voted to continue the NSA spying program received twice as much money in campaign donations from defense contractors than those who voted to end the program

America's Watchtower

  Last week the House held a vote on ending the NSA’s data-mining program and it was defeated by a vote of 217-205. This vote did not fall along party lines as 94 Republicans and 111 Democrats voted in favor of ending the program.

  So if the vote was not decided on party politics, what was it decided on? We know that virtually nobody in the Congress cares about the American people or this amendment would have passed, so that means we have to follow the money.

  It turns out, according to this article, that those who voted to keep the NSA data-mining program alive received, on average, twice as much money in campaign donations from defense contractors and the intelligence industry as did those who voted to end the program.
