Eshoo votes to defund NSA phone program

Original post made on Jul 25, 2013

U.S. Rep.

It's interesting to see who voted in favor and against this bill.

Of course the President was never going to sign it. I think some of those who voted against it knew that and cast a safe vote. But that's the skeptic in me typing.

What's really amazing is for all the complaining Democrats did when George Bush was President they sure haven't done much to undo any of the programs Bush started that we all thought were so evil.

In fact some of those programs have been augmented under Obama's watch.

I am pleased that Congresswoman Eshoo voted correctly.

Eshoo has spent a life time writing invasive rules and regulation for the Federal government to oversee and run our lives. Now she decided to back off a bit.

Hilarious
