House to weigh legislation to limit surveillance programs

NSA Phone Records Inside NSA

We thought the constitution would protect us from liberals.
Check it out:

The House will consider legislation that would cut off funds for the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs and impose limits on its operations.

The Rules Committee voted late Monday to allow the NSA amendments to the $598.3 billion defense bill to be voted on after the House begins consideration of the sweeping measure on Tuesday.

One amendment would bar the NSA from collecting records, including telephone call records, unless the individual is the subject of an ongoing investigation.

Another amendment prohibits funds to the NSA to target a U.S. individual or acquire and store the content of that person’s communications, including phone calls and emails.
