In a victory for the Trump administration, the House on Thursday approved legislation to renew government surveillance powers while voting down new limits on how authorities can use the information that is collected.

Just a few hours before the vote, President Trump roiled the waters by sending out a tweet that appeared to contradict his own administration’s opposition to the changes, which were offered by Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.).

That amendment failed by a vote of 183-233.

It's taken more than a hundred years for this disease to strangle the USA and it won't be cured overnight ... as more congressmen have to be removed. Trump has his problems like ALL Presidents, but he certainly is better than Hillary ...

Statists gonna state. What would you expect from a life-long progressive who said he was the law and order candidate, supports stop and frisk, promised to increase the military budget, and said Edward Snowden should be executed. Neoliberalism is a cancer; we must stop tolerating it in any amount.
