My View: Obama's actions fall short on scandals

(Continued)

There should be a bipartisan movement by Congress to call for hearings on these issues. How does your congressman stand on these issues? Does he think, “What difference does it make”? In an America where we have learned our own government is tracking every phone call, e-mail and nearly everything we do, how can they have no knowledge of what they are doing themselves? There must be checks and balances for any out-of-control government agency. I think, we as Americans must demand answers to these questions.
