House Republican Whip Eric Cantor blogged about the walkout here:
Our intelligence agencies need the tools necessary to listen in on terrorists who threaten and plot to do harm to our country. The Senate worked together in a bipartisan fashion earlier this week to accomplish this goal, but the House Democrat Leadership refuses to do the same. It Al-Qaeda is talking, we should be able to listen. Today, House Republicans stood up and demanded that Washington work for the people again.
I’ll be talking with Andrew McCarthy about the FISA issue on today’s Heading Right Radio. Be sure to catch it live.
