The NSA's Jobs Machine: Congress

Not to worry about whether the NSA will always have a job to do.

...senators also voted to weaken current law that requires the government to have biometric checks such as fingerprints or eye-scans for every visitor to the U.S. — a recommendation of the 9/11 commission that looked into the terrorist attacks on Washington and New York.

Senators said it is too expensive to check fingerprints at all air, land and sea ports of entry. Instead, the bill calls for photographic checks at air and sea ports, but excludes land ports....

Baldwin, who doesn't give a flying crap about national security, voted with the majority.
