Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 21, 2015
Al Franken, D-MN
"Americans understand, as I do, that our job here is to strike an appropriate balance, making sure, on the one hand, that we are safeguarding our national security, without trampling on our citizens’ fundamental privacy rights, on the other hand. But the public cannot know if we succeed in striking that balance if they do not even have the most basic information about our major surveillance programs. That is why my focus has been on transparency, because I want to make sure that the American people are able to decide for themselves whether we are getting this right."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"I see my colleagues are on the floor and I want to give them some time. But since you mentioned this question of the court cases, I think there was really striking language recently by Judge Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, talking about what the scooping up of all of these records really means. Judge Leon said, “a few scattered tiles of information” when collected in mass, can “reveal an entire mosaic” about a person including their religion, their sexual orientation, medical issues, and political affiliations."
