Rand Paul on NSA Speech: "What I Heard Was If You Like Our Privacy, You Can Keep It"

SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY): Well, what I think I heard was that if you like your privacy, you can keep it. But in the meantime, we're going to keep collecting your phone records, your e-mails, your text messages, and likely your credit card information.

So I didn't hear any lessening of the spying on Americans or collecting records of Americans. I heard that trust me, I'm going put some more safeguards in place, but I'm going to keep right on collecting every American's records.

This is something that's going to have to be decided by the Supreme Court. I think there's a real fundamental question whether one general warrant can apply to millions of people's records. And I think it's incorrectly being done, and the Supreme Court is going to ultimately have to decide on this.
