From what I'm reading it looks as if it (the one passed today)
is asking for limited amendments and limited time (5 min) for debates on hr624 (cispa)
before hr624 is voted on

"Your action or inaction will determine whether CISPA passes or fails. Members of Congress can be persuaded if they feel pressure from home. We're voting early on Thursday. Have you contacted your Representative?

For all the Representatives who are for this bill, I honestly and i mean honestly wonder if they believe they are speaking as the "voice" for the majority of their people....Who is pro this? What citizens are screaming in the streets for this to happen?
