Spying to continue, House votes down plan to defund the NSA
- As sickening as it is if you value privacy, the spying, prying and possibly lying will continue as Rep. Justin Amash’s proposal to defund the NSA was narrowly defeated. The vote was 205 – 217. Be sure you check out how your representative voted, if he or she was for the NSA to continue hoovering data and surveillance business as usual, or against it. Either way, we’re possibly screwed when it comes to reining in the surveillance state.
