The NSA’s phone surveillance programs are demonstrably unnecessary, as they haven’t stopped a single incidence of terrorism since their inception post-9/11. These programs intrude on citizens’ privacy and allow the government to collect vast amounts of information about people without their permission.
There’s no need to debate this bill since the NSA has already stopped its phone surveillance program for the time being and the bill giving it authority for phone surveillance programs — the USA FREEDOM Act of 2015 — is up for reauthorization this year. When that bill comes up for reauthorization, Congress will debate this issue and make a decision then.
