If it works than half of the topical aff's on this topic literally melt away. 

 

Now all we need is the NSA to be shut down and this could be a year with few if any topical affs!

Don't worry, Obama will just issue an executive order instructing the NSA to keep doing their thing, and turn around and say he doesn't need Congress to authorize it.

This is more accurate than I am comfortable admitting.  (and if he doesn't then Hilary will on Jan 21)

The patriot act is only a small part of surveillance authorization. There's also the FISA/FISC system, EO 12333, and s.309 of the Intelligence Authorization Act of 2015.

 

Furthermore, there are a shit ton of other forms of surveillance outside the NSA.

If you can win monitoring is surveillance, you'll gain access to the craziest affs.

Actually Obama just did the opposite, he XOed away the NSA for some reason. Or at least their phone surveillance.

No he didn't.  Obama hasn't done anything other than issue a memo that says in order to comply with the June 1 deadline, stuff will begin winding down on the 22nd.  He also didn't issue an XO about phone surveillance - that was the house.
