Just remember one thing..
the “Tyrants” that brought this to light and initially signed it into law was bushie and the pubs, who controlled both the house and senate at the time...
FISA was originaly from 1978, amended in 2001, 2007, 2208 and 2012. Big mix of blame, not jus the pubs.
Actually these amendments were passed by the 110th Congress in 2008 when the Dems had control.
House - 233 (D), 198 (R)
Senate - 49 (D), 49 (R)
The House voted 293 - 129 for it. The Senate voted 69 - 28 for it. President Bush did sign it into law though.
Then the 112th Congress voted to extend the law for five years.
House - 242 (R), 193 (D)
Senate - 51(D), 47 (R)
House voted 301 - 118 for it; Senate voted 73 - 23 for it.
