USA Freedom is a *fake* privacy bill.

On May 7th, 2015, the Second District Court of Appeals ruled that the NSA's bulk collection of phone call data using Section 215 of the Patriot Act is illegal. This decision, if upheld, would end the NSA's capability to suck up bulk phone call data.

Now Congress is trying to pass a bill— the USA Freedom Act—that would give this power back to the NSA through new legal loopholes, while appearing on the surface to reign-in the NSA. The bill is scheduled for a vote in the House of Representatives this week. Don't be fooled. This bill is designed to appease the public while cementing the government's surveillance authority for years to come.

It's not too late to stop Congress. They're trying to sneak this past the American public, but if enough people call shenanigans on it, they'll have to stop. Contact Congress now!

USA Freedom Act doesn't just fail to reform mass surveillance; it extends and expands it.

This bill will prevent *real* NSA reform.

The USA Freedom Act will prevent the reform we really need — the expiration of the bulk collection provisions of the Patriot Act, Section 215 — which is currently scheduled to take place on June 1.

The government has already proven with the existing law that they will exploit every loophole they can find to spy on hundreds of millions of people who are suspected of no wrongdoing. On the surface, the USA Freedom Act appears to reign mass surveillance in, but it is carefully worded to allow all sorts of new spying, while nullifying any privacy benefits it appears to offer.
