In case anyone is interested, here is the list of CONgress votes for and against the bill that would have defunded the blanket NSA spy program. It failed in a very close vote across party lines. I was surprised at how close it was in the end. I was also surprised by the bi-partisan voting lines.

 

My Rep., Dent, is one of the dirtbags who voted to prevent reigning in this unconstitutional power. He is always on the wrong side, but this time it may finally cost him his job.

 

The “noes” support continued NSA abuse of power.
