OK. I understand the the outrage, but couldn't you also call for investigations into any/all industries that donate financially to members of Congress and the Senate for alleged bribery?

Say for example, big oil?

Let's face it folks, this is how the political game is played. I don't like it, but it's just they way it is.

You certainly could, but big oil doesn't have the online momentum at this particular time that was generated by the anti-SOPA/PIPA movement.

If this gets government seriously looking at lobbying practices, any lobbying practices, that's more likely to translate to something that might impact all lobbyists than doing nothing at all.
