Get Your Congressional Commerce Committee: On Sale Now—Cheap!

With the lopsided vote against Internet freedom last week in the House Telecom and Internet Subcommittee, we decided to ask the folks at the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) to pull together a list of campaign contributions given to committee members. So here’s a link to an Excel spread sheet [which will download] that will show you the cable/telco contributions to both the full House and Senate Commerce committees. It tracks contributions from just these two industries from the last Congress (108th) to the current 109th. Dates for the 108th are from Jan. 1, 2003 to Dec. 31, 2004. For the 109th, it’s based on CRP’s most recent acquisition of data, downloaded on Mar. 13, 2006 (but doesn’t include contributions for March itself).
Money from cable and telephone companies and their lobbying associations are being spread around like chocolate candies given to kids at Easter/Passover. It’s no wonder–sadly–that the American public can’t expect any broadband legislation which would put their interests above our crass, cash-dispensing, phone and cable monopolies. To find the list of top contributors to your favorite member, just go to CRP. Then look again at your phone and cable bills. You know where the money is going.
