FISA Vote: Where Were The “Small Government” Conservatives?

Only seven Republicans voted against the FISA Amendments Act Reauthorization (HR 5949). Vote totals here.

So I guess all the Tea Party Caucus rhetoric about the evils of big government doesn’t apply to intrusive, industrial-scale government surveillance of every call, fax, email, SMS, chat, etc. of every American. The word your looking for to describe this phenomonon? Hypocricy.
