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.
name - Name of the Congressional representative.
party - The party of the representative: D for Democrat and R for Republican.
state - State for the representative.
money - Money received from the defense industry for their campaigns.
phone_spy_vote - Voting to rein in the phone dragnet or continue allowing mass surveillance.
