In 2013, the House of Representatives voted to not stop the National Security Agency's (NSA's) mass surveillance of phone behaviors. We look at two predictors for how a representative voted: their party and how much money they have received from the private defense industry.
A data frame with 434 observations on the following 5 variables.
Name of the Congressional representative.
The party of the representative:
D for Democrat and
R for Republican.
State for the representative.
Money received from the defense industry for their campaigns.
Voting to rein in the phone dragnet or continue allowing mass surveillance.
