Wait, why the hell is Ted Deutch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (2 of the local congress members in the heavily gerrymandered state of Florida) in favor of SOPA? And since Schultz is the current chair of the DNC, she has considerable power on members voting Yea or Nay...
EDIT: Senator Nelson as well? I need to start calling these members STAT!
You haven't gotten it yet? Both parties take campaign money from the same big donors (the film industry donates particularly heavily to the Democrats) who tell them to pass legislation that helps their interests. The whole system is broken because there is so much campaign money swishing around, creating the wrong incentives putting the interests of those with a lot of money and connections ahead of the people.
Do you watch The Young Turks? They have pretty good coverage on the politics behind SOPA, which is pretty much non-existant on any major cable news show.
Also good is RussiaToday and The Alyona Show.
