Bill to rein in NSA domestic spying gains more than 100 co-sponsors.

And, yep, they’re from both parties:

The USA Freedom Act, authored by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., the original author of the Patriot Act, has 107 co-sponsors in the House. The Senate version, authored by Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., has 18 co-sponsors.

The bill would reform sections of the Patriot Act to end the federal government’s mass collection of phone records and Internet activity — essentially ending the spy programs leaked by Edward Snowden.

“The days of unfettered spying on the American people are numbered,” Amash said when the bill was introduced.

“Unfettered” is kind of a weasel word in this context, but it’s better than nothing.

I’m aure Boehner will hold a vote in the House, but what will Harry Reid do in the Senate?

The already have fetters in place for this. The problem is, this administration ignores the fetters. Laws mean nothing without prosecution and punishment. Who shall watch the watchman. We elected criminals, so we get criminal activity.
