Three Senators Cave On Surveillance Bill; Tell Your Senators to Hold the Line NOW

Today, three key Senators who had previously stood against Senator Specter's surveillance bill and caved to the White House's wishes regarding NSA spying legislation. Like Specter himself, these representatives agreed to a sham "compromise." The amendments do not change the simple fact that this bill remains just as dangerous as ever and in many respects is even worse.

Now more than ever, we need your help to stop the illegal spying -- take action NOW and tell your Senators to use all possible means to block this bill. The Senate recesses in six short days, and the November election is right around the corner, giving voters a chance to rebuke those who have supported the massive and illegal NSA spying program. But if you don't take action now, the election may come too late.
