    House passes bill to end bulk collection of phone records by NSA

    he U.S. House sent a bipartisan message Thursday, voting to end the practice of bulk collection of phone records conducted by the National Security Agency. The surveillance of such "metadata" was revealed last year by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, prompting public disapproval and congressional anger from lawmakers who said the intelligence agency was not forthcoming with Congress about the scope of their surveillance efforts.The USA FREEDOM Act, sponsored by Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., passed 303-121 with 179 Republicans and 124 Democrats in support. Of the 121 lawmakers opposed, 51 were Republicans and 70 were Democrats. Sensenbrenner played an instrumental role in shaping the federal government's post-9/11 national security infrastructure.

    IF it gets thru the Senate and IF Nobama signs it, what with this administrations history of ignoring laws what makes one think it will be inforced.

    I'm 100% confident the NSA and federal government will completely obey the law. I'm so relieved my phone and records are private again!

    He will just executive order it back to the way it was.
