Booker would vote to keep NSA spying and the patriot act

Cory Booker would vote to keep NSA and the Patriot Act. All he can say about it is that we "need to have a conversation" about it - nothing more. That's government-speak for, "I wouldn't vote against it."

"Lonegan is particularly outspoken in his opposition to the NSA surveillance, while Booker more cautious in his critique; in July a spokesperson for Booker said he opposed the narrowly defeated Amash amendment in the House, which would have banned the NSA's ongoing collection of the phone records of all Americans."
