Mike Huckabee Congress is naturally reluctant to do anything that might undermine national security by limiting the NSA’s surveillance efforts. But after the Edward Snowden revelations, and six weeks with no answers about them from the White House or the NSA, the tide seems to be turning. A growing number of Congress members from both parties think the spying on Americans has gone too far and are introducing bills to rein in surveillance and force more disclosure. The first test may come this week, with an amendment to a defense spending bill to end the collection of Americans’ phone records. NSA supporters say they’re doing nothing illegal, and it’s all within the law and meant to keep us safe. But even Rep. James Sensenbrenner, who introduced the Patriot Act, said he wasn’t aware of it okaying the dragnet collection of everyone’s phone records. And if he had thought that, he would’ve opposed it himself.
