The 217 Congressional Traitors Who Voted Against Restraining the NSA

It should be no surprise, since the Congress betrays the voters again and again, but yesterday the Amash Amendment was narrowly voted down in the House of Representatives.

The 217 Congressional Traitors Who Voted Against Restraining the NSA

The Amash Amendment, co-sponsored by  Rep-Justin Amash (R) and Rep-John Conyers (D), would have taken away the NSA’s funding for the massive surveillance project that was recently exposed by Edward Snowden.  As well, the act would have prevented the NSA from using Section 215 of the unPatriot Act to justify the blanket collection of records, including telephone records “that pertain to persons who are not subject to an investigation under Section 215.”

The bill was only defeated by 12 votes.  (It’s interesting to note that 12 members of the House just didn’t find it important to vote on this matter:  Barletta, Beatty, Bustos, Campbell, Coble, Herrera Beutler, Horsford, McCarthy (NY), Negrete McLeod, Pallone, Rokita, and Schock.)

And here is the Traitor’s List…

Their justification, of course, is that the citizens of the country just don’t understand the need for complete surveillance.  After all, they’re just keeping us safe, right?

Considering the ire that was even heard in the mainstream media about the NSA’s overreaching and unconstitutional snooping, it’s a pretty fair bet that the “Representatives” are doing anything but “representing” the wishes of their constituents.

    Adcito took 64 seconds to load?

    This list makes the criminals easier to identify.

  3. Rich Buckley says:

    Also, does anyone know the 12 names who did not vote?

    Donate to Oath Keepers Billboard Campaign

    Chances are 50/50 your Congressional Representative voted against HR 2397 that would have defunded NSA domestic spying. The vote was close and the momentum is building. Consider making a small donation to “Oath Keepers” for their new highway billboard ads starting around  Washington DC supporting patriotic whistleblowers. These billboard ads are tremendously powerful, especially when under 8-Seconds to read and highlight your local Congressperson’s phone number for action. 

  5. Michael J. Marsalek says:

    Consider that each & every member above voted to continue funding an unConstitutional program in violation of their sworn duty and oath of office. Regardless of their excuse, each has a sworn duty to uphold the law and each has violated the public trust. They, like all Americans are bound to obey the law; but they, unlike the rest of Americans, have the ability to change any and all laws. Thus, it is important to remember that the voters gave these people the authority to make, change and repeal laws but not any permission to violate the law. This said, there must be serious consequences for their vote. There are two names that jump off the page and both deserve to be singled out for extraordinary disciplinary action. They are the present and former Speakers Of The House: John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi. For their deliberate violation of the Constitution, breach of the public trust and other crimes against the American people, both must be immediately removed from Congress by whatever legal means available & necessary.
