Michigan Democrat Congressman John Conyers: U.S. on Verge of Becoming a Surveillance State


(CBS News Detroit) Michigan Democrat Congressman John Conyers says that he fears that the nation may be “on the verge of becoming a surveillance state,” during Obama’s Watch.

Conyers comments follow growing concerns amid revelations about government surveillance of Americans.

“We have a feeling, at least some of us, that its not necessary, nor does it serve a legitimate legal protective service,” Conyers said adding that he believes the NSA surveillance on Americans is too “far reaching…and violates the fundamental privacy, of law-abiding citizens.”

Obama 2004 Complains Bush Rushed Legislation

ObamaCare Vote Without Reading

In a recently discovered audio, Obama being interviewed on MSNBC complains that the GOP is rushing legislation through Congress before one has an opportunity to read the bill.

Obama: “…When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea what’s in them…”

Randi Rhodes: “14 pounds was it?”

Obama: “Yea and it gets rushed through without any clear deliberations or debate and I think that this in someways what happened to the Patriot Act…”

Rep. John Conyers, D-MI sees no point in reading 1,000 page ObamaCare, unless one has two lawyers to help interpret the bill.

Not very reassuring, does not instill a lot of confidence in the Democrat controlled Congress.
