Re: Thank f#ck for that

... the fact it was voted down at least restores some faith that elected representatives actually represent the people who vote for them, not the people who pay them.

The bill failed to get a super-majority though it did have a simple majority. It didn't even fail on the merits of the issues that I feel strongly about (see the note concerning copyright). To me, at least, this is more a case that a small number of elected officials' interests happened to align with those of some of their constituents... Well, perhaps that is how a representative democracy works after all.
