Dems Support Telecom Immunity

I’m starting to think a bunch of the House Democrats are in the McCain camp when it comes to giving retroactive immunity to the telecommunications companies for giving our private call information to the government. Now it’s House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer who’s trying to get this done in secret, hoping that his proposed changes to FISA will get passed before congress knows what hit them.

Why is it necessary for Democrats — who were elected specifically to help bring an end to the abuses of this White House — to cave to the administration on every single issue? Why do they feel it’s necessary to “come to an agreement” with George W. Bush on anything, let alone major telecom companies disclosing private information on US citizens to the government?
