We have a chance to fight back this week: The Massie-Lofgren amendment is about to come up in the House of Representatives. It would:
1) Ban the NSA and FBI from conducting "backdoor" database searches for information about Americans, and
2) Ban the NSA and FBI from mandating that private companies add backdoors to the encryption standards that are in place to keep technology users safe from malicious data thefts.
The Massie-Lofgren amendment has overwhelmingly passed in the House the last two years, but it's been killed by secret deals with leadership. Now's the time for another show of force, as we try to get it passed once and for all.
