Amendment to restrict NSA spying fails by only 12 votes. How did your rep vote?

H/T Armed Forces Tea Party
The Congress just voted to allow the NSA to collect your personal information without a warrant.

The roll call on this one is absolutely stunning.  Both parties were essentially split right down the middle, and the measure failed by the tiniest of margins.

Here’s a tweet from Rep. Justin Amash (who proposed the bill amendment) directly after the vote:

And here’s the complete roll call for the vote: 205 for and 217 against. Notable no votes include Michelle Bachmann, John Boehner, Darrel Issa, Sheila Jackson Lee, Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  Wow!  What a motley crew, all joined together to allow the government to continue spying on its citizens.
