To the commenters who think NSA needs this to keep us safe:  If you think the Government can be trusted with ANY access to our data you are still sleeping.  Read up on the IRS issues and then say they NEED this to keep us safe.  They don't NEED our data, they WANT it to work their stupid political tricks.

Some of this is necessary to keep our country safe. If the go into my records they will find nothing that I am ashamed of so go to it. Why are so many afraid?

@Mercedes Burtle It's not a matter of being afraid.  The problem is, if you don't agree with what the government or certain people in the government, like that donkey in the white house, they will use your words and twist them around and change the meaning of what you said and use it against you.  Old Indian Chief Red Jacket said it right.  They give us their words and change the meaning to fit their own needs.  You cannot trust any part of the government anymore.  You can't believe half of what they tell you and you have to question the other half.

@Mercedes Burtle Well, it's like a stranger watching you have sex through your bedroom window. You are doing nothing wrong...

134 Republicans and 83 Democrats are now on record in favor of spying on their constituents. I'm seeing a lot of comments by people saying that this will change their house vote in 2014. Many constituents are very angry with their representative who voted to continue spying on them. This could change everything.

Must you sully the word "capitalism" by using it with "crony?" Please adopt "cronyism" or something like that.

Everyone who voted no should be the target of a recall initiative

Proud that an overwhelming amount of Democrat support in California went towards defunding this despite it failing. Not shocked that about an even number of GOP were split on it here though.

Yup. The only Muslim in congress took care of that. Good Job Keith! Need more gov money for these lovely Somalians that are having a hard time assimilating to the western culture. Expensive.

@Raymond Siri You have to be kidding me.  You would vote for someone that lies about being a navy seal to be yur president?  Jesse Ventura has never been and never will be a navy seal.  He was connected with a sweal outfit in the reserves, but he has never even gone through seal training.  He is just an underwater demolition man, period.

I see that my congressman voted against, so I will never vote for him again. (5th district, VA)

Why is America so surprised. Big Brother has always spied on its citizens. Monitoring potential terrorist and other rouge activity is just the kind of cover they need to do such. We are in the mist of the New World Order. The rule of law will change, society will change, your freedoms will be limited and for your own safety you will be disarmed and do what you are told under martial law. Just pay attention to what's going on in the world. Stop watching all these silly programs and game shows and pay attention!

The House of Representatives was Play-Acting for the voters in their vote....it was pre-ordained that the Federal Surveillance State will continue to grow, expand, intrude, and control the citizenry. Our only countermeasure: Vote with your pocketbook. Limit your spending on EVERYTHING. Starve the Beast!

@George Mcfarlin  I am afraid Mr. Mcfarlin is correct. The only force that slows or reverses this current is a million fed up people in the streets

These maps are one of the fines tools to identify idiot zones. I can't believe that here in the midwest, eastern Iowa is so full of mal-educated morons. They brag about being so intelegent but are selling us all out so they can feel good about themselves.

@PaulSchmidt  Why is Leslie Jowiski living in open adultery with my husband John Schauer?  Using up community assets while I can hardly pay the bills on the farm?

@Leslie S. Jowiski  Unfortunately Boehner has drunk the security at the expensive of liberty coolaid.  I am also disappointed that the amendment did not do well in my district (Boehner) and in Ohio.

Election fraud, cronyism and collusion= government spying programs. Private sector and foreign contractors building cameras for street corners. Phones for recording your every word. Drones for backyard invasion of privacy without judicial process. America is a becoming like a prison or police state.
