Stop NSA Hacking!
Patrick, Sam, Jackson, Easton, Peter
This is what we think
I think the NSA is wrong for hacking people’s phones, internet, and social media websites like facebook and twitter. I don’t like the fact that i don’t have any privacy on my phone or device. In fact the NSA collects billions of data per day. They can hack any camera in a device. They can even cut off the internet, August 13, 2014 they cut off Syria's internet.
Senate Says stop NSA Snooping By: Erin Kelly
WASHINGTON — The Senate will take up legislation as early as next week to stop the National Security Agency from collecting the phone records of millions of Americans.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has filed a motion that could bring a procedural vote on the USA Freedom Act as soon as Tuesday and a final vote on the bill by the end of next week.
"The American people are wondering whether Congress can get anything done," said Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the bill's lead sponsor. "The answer is yes. Congress can and should take up and pass the bipartisan USA Freedom Act, without delay."
The bill would ban the NSA's controversial bulk collection of phone records while allowing targeted surveillance of suspected terrorists.
The measure is co-sponsored by a rare coalition that spans the political spectrum from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. It also has the support of a wide range of more than 40 groups from the American Civil Liberties Union to the Republican Liberty Caucus.
Supporters of the bill, including major American tech companies, have been pushing for passage in the lame-duck session of Congress so that they do not have to begin from scratch when the new Congress convenes in January.
