Don’t Reauthorize NSA Spying in a Must-Pass Funding Bill

Don’t Reauthorize NSA Spying in a Must-Pass Funding Bill

India McKinney

Some legislators want to reauthorizea a controversial NSA spying authority called Section 702, without meaningful reform, by attaching it to must-pass spending legislation. That's a big mistake.

It is troubling that a secretive NSA surveillance program may be reauthorized in a secret legislative backroom deal. But this program is too important to be hidden in a big funding bill, and members shouldn’t be forced to choose between shutting down the federal government or violating the Fourth Amendment.

702 is so scary and in the wrong hands it is a nightmare, like the wrong hands of today! When it was first passed I don’t think congress envisioned a government like we have now. The tool called the NSA is now a monkey-wrench thrown into the spinning gears of our Republic. OOOPPPSSS, my hand slipped and now I’ve a bunch of stripped nuts.

Simple, dump 702, no fuss no muss, amerika is way better off without 702!
