The House of Representatives recently passed a bill called the “USA FREEDOM Act” that purports to tackle mass surveillance—an issue that affects hundreds of millions of Americans. But the USA FREEDOM Act is not real reform. Instead of meaningfully restoring American civil liberties, it instead preserves bulk data collection and ultimately fails to end mass surveillance. Thankfully, the USA Freedom Act did not pass the Senate. If it had, it would have effectively solidified the NSA’s unconstitutional spying of Americans—again.
