    Congress is starting to take a hard look at what NSA is doing and what they created when passing the Patriot Act. Looks like a move is afoot to at least take some provisions out of the act.

    This will most likely include a rider that exonerates/removes congressional members from the list of those that can be tapped without a specific court order, in open court, and then passed. If you are paying attention there are tons of riders coming out in bills that pass nowadays giving special treatment/consideration to subsets of the populace. Not that this is a new concept, just one that is being used more often and openly at this point.
