I went to the House floor this week to give my colleagues in Congress a wake up call. Americans are fed up with our government and its latest scandals – and they should be. We deserve better than a government spies on us, infringes on our Constitutional rights, and stifles economic growth and innovation. Watch video of my floor speech below.
A recent Washington Post poll found that the majority of Americans think it’s acceptable for the NSA to track our phone records as a means to investigate terrorism. I’m conducting my own survey to hear what you think about this controversial issue. So far, 98% of participants disagree with the Washington Post poll. What about you? Join the conversation here.
