ABOVE VIDEO: Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took to Fox News Sunday to declare his legal opposition to the NSA’s surveillance programs & announced he will introduce the Fourth Amendment Restoration Act of 2013, which ensures the Constitutional protections of the Fourth Amendment are not violated by any government entity. Congressman Bill Posey believes there is a growing disparity in the necessary and proper check and balance of power that’s required to protect our Republic.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – In response to recent revelations of the National Security Agency’s acquisition of millions of Americans’ cell phone records, Senators and Congressmen are assessing oversight of the U.S. Executive Branch . Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) plans to file a class action lawsuit with internet companies and phone companies against the NSA. Congressman Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) believes there is a growing disparity in the necessary and proper check and balance of power. In a statement to SpaceCoastDaily.com, Rep. Bill Posey (R-Rockledge) said:
“This growing concern about the loss of privacy is one reasons that I voted against reauthorizing the Patriot Act in 2011 – too many unanswered questions about the erosion of Constitutional privacy rights,” said Congressman Posey. “It is also ironic that the Administration has moved to acquire the phone, email and internet records of millions of law-abiding Americans, yet it continues to block Congressional access to Administration documents needed to conduct Congressional oversight of the Executive Branch. There is a growing disparity in the necessary and proper check and balance of power that’s required to protect our Republic.”
