In US House, 83 Dems Vote to Continue Illegal Collection of Records

The following are the Democrats in the US House of Representatives who successfully voted with Republicans such as Michele Bachmann, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Trent Franks, Peter King, Steve King and Paul Ryan yesterday to defeat legislation that, to quote its summary, would "end authority for the blanket collection of records under the Patriot Act. It would also bar the NSA [National Security Agency] and other agencies from using Section 215 of the Patriot Act to collect records, including telephone call records, that pertain to persons who are not subject to an investigation under Section 215." Such collection is un-Constitutional.
