Repealing the Patriot Act with Rep. Massie
On December 15, 2020, Representatives Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) introduced H.R. 8970, the Protect Our Civil Liberties Act, to repeal the USA Patriot Act and to remove the dangerous provisions from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Joining The New American to discuss the bipartisan legislation aimed at restoring constitutional protections of Americans’ civil liberties is Rep. Massie. Congressman Massie also addresses the unconstitutional provisions within the bloated and recently passed $900 billion coronavirus stimulus bill.
Good, the "Patriot" act was introduced to try to correct a problem that was caused by government. As usual it was abused and mutated into a cancer that has infected the country and left us subject to the whims of whomever happens to have power at any given time. It needs to go along with anything else that is not in the enumerated powers granted to them by the constitution.
