Sens. Diane Feinstein D-Calif. and Mel Martinez R-Fla. authored a bill with 11 co-sponsors, including Sen. Barack Obama that was incorporated into a housing bill passed by the Senate Banking Committee 19-2 before the Memorial Day recess — a bill that creates a national fingerprint registry.
The outcry from the the mainstream media here in the United States — the very same people who complained about our privacy and liberties in the wake of the news that the NSA was listening in on phone calls involving known terror suspects — is where? Their silence is deafening.
Barack Obama is showing us through his actions exactly who he is. But are we paying attention?
You need to make your voice known. Use The Mailbox to contact your senators. Tell them since it is an affront to liberty and privacy, vote “no” on the SAFE Mortgage Licensing Act (S. 2595). And monitor the progress of this bill in our Action Center.
