While coming to some agreement over living within America's means now seems hopelessly beyond the ability of Congress, at least the Senate can agree on one thing:
- U.S. SENATE HAS ENOUGH VOTES TO RENEW WARRANTLESS WIRETAP LAW - BBG
- WIRETAP LAW LETS U.S. GOVERNMENT MONITOR E-MAILS AND CALLS
In other words, when it comes to spying on its citizens, the US government is quite united. It will also be unanimous when it has to vote its annual COLA salary increase to keep up with the true 10% inflation.
