A Different Amendment Restricting NSA Spying Was Passed Overwhelmingly by the House – But ‘No One Is Talking About It’Submitted by Habit4ming on Fri, 07/26/2013 - 12:41
Although Amash's Anti-NSA Amendment was squashed, it appears hardly anyone is talking about the Anti-NSA Amendment that did pass: The Pompeo Amendment (passed with a vote of 409-12).
The Blaze article linked below goes on to state that "...lawmakers also intend to “rewrite” the Patriot Act sometime this fall and lamented the fact that he and other conservatives were fooled into voting for it the first time around..."
I'm not sure that I'm buying into the "fooled the first time around" excuse due to there being a "second time around, a third time around", etc. One must also wonder why 'they' have to wait until fall to rewrite the blasted thing (I'd prefer to just see it repealed, but will accept ANY positive steps in the right direction)!
