A bipartisan group emerges to fight the bipartisan group opposed to the NSA wiretapping program. (5:14)

BOTH LAYING NEXT TO A ROTTEN

BANANA.

SO WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS MAGICAL

AMENDMENT THAT HAS BROUGHT

EVERYONE TOGETHER?

>> WE'RE HERE TO ANSWER ONE

QUESTION FOR THE PEOPLE WE

REPRESENT.

DO WE OPPOSE THE SUSPICION LIST

COLLECTION OF EVERY AMERICANS'

PHONE RECORDS.

MY AMENDMENT MAKES A SIMPLE BUT

UPON CHANGE.

IT LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT'S

COLLECTION OF THOSE RECORDS...

OF THE RECORDS SO THOSE RECORDS

THAT PERTAIN TO A PERSON WHO IS

IS THE SUBJECT OF AN

INVESTIGATION.

>> John: NO LONGER WILL WE ALLOW

THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE OUR

PERSONAL INFORMATION.

WE WILL KEEP IT WHERE IT

BELONGS: ON FACEBOOK.

ON GOOGLE.

ON TWITTER.

ON INSTAGRAM.

ON LINKED-IN.

EVEN THOUGH I KEEP TELLING

LINKED-IN TO STOP SENDING ME

EMAILS.

LEAVE ME ALONE, LINKED-IN.

I'M ON TELEVISION.

UNSUBSCRIBE... SUBSCRIBE.

I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU

DO, LINKED IN.

YOU SEEM TO HAVE MONETIZED

IRRITATING PEOPLE.

NEVERTHELESS, THIS PROPOSED

AMENDMENT TRIGGERED ONE OF THE

RAREST SIGHTS IN NATURE.

WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT TO WITNESS HAS

NEVER BEEN CAUGHT ON CAMERA

BEFORE: DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS BOTH NATURAL

PREDATORS FEASTING ON THE SAME

TALKING POINT.

>> WHAT IT DOES DO IS PREVENT

THE COLLECTION OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

NOT SUBJECT TO INVESTIGATION.

>> MANY AMERICANS FEEL THAT OUR

FUNDAMENTAL LIBERTIES AS A

COUNTRY AND OUR CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHTS ARE THREATENED.

>> WHAT THEY'RE DOING VIOLATES

THE FOURTH AMENDMENT.

>> BEN FRANKLIN SAID THEY WHO

GIVE UP ESSENTIAL LIBERTIES TO

OBTAIN A LITTLE TEMPORARY

SAFETY.

>> THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO TRADE

LIBERTY FOR SECURITY WILL FIND

THEY HAVE NEITHER.

>> John: SIDE NOTE.

IT TURNS OUT WATCHING C-SPAN

WITH BINOCULARS IS EXACTLY AS

BORING AS WATCHING C-SPAN

WITHOUT BINOCULARS.

SO, LOOK, THAT'S GREAT NEWS FOR

THIS BUILDING BECAUSE WE ALL

KNOW IF YOU CAN GET BIPARTISAN

SUPPORT FOR SOMETHING IT'S GOING

TO PASS.

UNLESS ANOTHER BIPARTISAN GROUP

EMERGES TO FIGHT IT.

BUT THERE'S NO WAY THAT'S GOING

TO HAPPEN.

IS THERE IN ROLL THE TAPE.

>> THE TOP THREE REPUBLICANS IN

THE HOUSE OPPOSE THE MEASURE.

>> A TOP REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT

OF THE COMMITTEE RELEASED A

JOINT STATEMENT CALLING IT

UNWISE.

A WHITE HOUSE RELEASED A

STATEMENT URGING THE HOUSE TO

REJECT IT.

>> John: JOHN BOEHNER AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA AGREE ON

SOMETHING.

THE ONLY OTHER THINGS THEY'VE

EVER AGREED ON WERE, ONE,

ESTIMATION YOU NEED A GOOD CRY.

TWO, MICHAEL KEATON IS IS A BEST

BATMAN AND THREE, BRAZIL NUTS

ARE NOTHING MORE THAN PACKING

MATERIAL FOR ALL THE OTHER NUTS

IN THE MIX.

SO THEY GOT A FOUR.

NOTHING SHOWS THOUGH JUST HOW

WEIRD THESE COALITIONS HAVE

BECOME THAN THE FACT THAT THE

PRESIDENT ALSO ENDED UP ON THE

SAME SIDE AS THIS PERSON.

>> THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS

TAKING IN THE CONTENT OF

AMERICAN PHONE CALLS.

IT'S NOT TRUE.

IT'S NOT HAPPENING.

WE NEED TO DEAL IN FACTS.

LET'S DEAL IN REALITY, NOT IN

FALSE NARRATIVES.

>> John: YES, YES.

WAIT, WAIT.

YOU'RE JUMPING AHEAD.

YOU HEARD KROACTLY.

MICHELLE BACHMAN JUST ARGUED

WHAT WE SHOULDN'T DEAL IN FALSE

NARRATIVES.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE FALSE NARRATIVE

THAT SAYS MICHELLE BACHMAN

DOESN'T DEAL IN FALSE

NARRATIVES.

>> THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES WILL BE TAKING A TRIP

OVER TO INDIA THAT IS IS

EXPECTED TO COST THE TAX PAYER

DLZ 200 MILLION A DAY.

HER LITTLE DAUGHTER TOOK THAT

VACCINE, THAT INJECTION AND SHE

SUFFERED FROM MENTAL RETARDATION

THEREAFTER.

THE VERY FOUNDERS THAT WROTE

THOSE DOCUMENTS WORKED

TIRELESSLY UNTIL SLAVERY WAS NO

MORE.

THEY USE THE U.S. CENSUS

INFORMATION TO ROUND UP THE

JAPANNESE AND PUT THEM IN THE

INTERNMENT CAMPS.

THERE ISN'T EVEN ONE STUDY THAT

CAN BE PRODUCED THAT SHOWS THAT

CARBON DIOXIDE IS A HARMFUL GAS.

>> John: THAT IS A WAKE-UP CALL.

YOU KNOW, MR. PRESIDENT, WHEN

MICHELLE BACHMAN IS ON YOUR

SIDE, YOU MAY WANT TO LOOK AT

THE SIDE THAT YOU ARE ON.

SHE IS THE CANARY IN THE CRAZY

MINE.

I MYSELF WEAR A BRACELET

EVERYDAY THAT READS WHAT

WOULDN'T MICHELLE BACHMAN DO.

SO, LOOK, 56% OF THE PUBLIC SEEM

TO BE IN FAVOR OF THE AMENDMENT

RESTRICTING THE GOVERNMENT'S

PHONE DATA COLLECTION.

WE ALL KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS.

>> THE N.S.A.'S CONTROVERSIAL

SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM IS HERE TO

STAY.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT THE HOUSE VOTED

DOWN AN AMENDMENT THAT WOULD

HAVE DEFUNDED THE PROGRAM THAT

COLLECTS DATA ON AMERICANS'

PHONE RECORDS.

>> John: THIS IS THE WORKS.

YES.

THIS IS THE WORKS.

ONCE AGAIN, CONGRESS FAILS TO

GET SOMETHING DONE.

THE IMPORTANT THING IS THAT THIS

TIME THEY FAILED TO GET IT DONE

TOGETHER.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
