Most of the concerns here seem to be centered on the revision of FISA dealing with telecom immunity, … which I agree with. Basically the telecom’s did indeed break the law at the executive office’s request, but they still went against current law (and subverted the spirit of the constitution if you ask me) by providing details about their clients to the Feds. Concerns over becoming a big brother state aside, we have a perfectly reasonable procedures law enforcement can follow to obtain warrants allowing access which telecoms must follow. There is absolutely no need (or desire, hopefully) to allow law enforcement access to any line they please at any time without oversight. I hope people are familiar with studies that found upwards of 85% of (currently) illegal were useless and unnecessary (sorry, I forget the source) so why should the American public be gung ho about bringing the telecoms onboard to giving them less oversight legally?

I really hope the people that are roiled at this addendum can take a second to write to their rep and ask them to Vote Nay.
