"US spying prompts reversal by anti-terror lawmaker
Email this Story

WASHINGTON (AP)- He gave more surveillance power to U.S. government spies, railed against civil liberties advocates who warned about privacy abuses, and famously shut down a 2005 hearing to silence critics. Now Rep. James Sensenbrenner wants to scale back some of the counterterror laws he once championed, citing an overreach by the National Security Agency that has proven him wrong.

Sensenbrenner says he was "appalled and angry" to learn this year that the NSA was sweeping up millions of Americans' phone records each day. He says that goes far beyond the intent of the 2001 USA Patriot Act, of which he was the chief congressional architect and which was enacted weeks after the 9/11 terror attacks.

Both at home and abroad, anger over the surveillance programs that NSA leaker Edward Snowden revealed in June has given rise to a new round of plans to limit U.S. snooping. But the government is sharply divided over how to assure Americans and the world at large that their private lives are not being invaded while still protecting against terror attacks. It's likely that lawmakers who oversee competing interests of justice and intelligence issues will end up with a compromise that limits some domestic surveillance.

On Tuesday, Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., and Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., offered legislation to overhaul the NSA. Already, the bill has bipartisan backing in the House and Senate and support from a broad array of support groups that ranges from the National Rifle Association to the American Civil Liberties Union.

"We have to make a balance between security and civil liberties," Sensenbrenner said in an interview last week. "And the reason the intelligence community has gotten itself into such trouble is they apparently do not see why civil liberties have got to be protected."

That's a turnabout of sorts for Sensenbrenner, who once accused privacy advocates of "exaggeration and hyperbole" for raising alarms of government spying when the Patriot Act was re-authorized in 2006...."

Hey, Jack, you want to explain why 74% of the bankruptcies caused about by medical bills were those with medical insurance? Don't go to Brietbart; figure it out for yourself...

The President isn't playing on municipal golf courses; most private golf courses make you use a cart; I agree that walking is better, I don't know why it isn't allowed; unless it's changed again.
It hasn't changed Lily__there are various sorts of golf courses, that's all.

Typically a decent course/club will require carts during the AM and might allow walking in the afternoon when the cheap fks and duffers come out of the woodwork. There are other rules and regs regarding form of dress etc at some courses.

The golf industry is in a bit of a slump lately and the rules and regs are being ignored in some places__Temeculah CA for instance__but not in Palm Beach or any of the membership only

There are lots of options for policies on the exchanges & privately so you can choose a plan that includes your doctor.

The government can't control insurance companies that make changes & insurance companies have always made changes.

Having a bad hypocrite day? Seriously, you pointed out one issue associated with our system, yet Democrats wrote a 2000 page bill Nancy Pelosi said we had to pass before we could read it.

"You can keep your existing policy" was a B - I - G Obama lie.

There is so much wrong with what the Democrats forced upon us.

Your nit-picking about one problem isn't helping all the people that are now screwed and can't find a job or lost their insurance or are paying a lot more.

Now, be sure to check my spelling hypocrite.

Easy for a slug like you to say. Millions of people have and will be adversely impacted, but a brown shirt slug like you just brushes it off.
