Joe Kennedy III was the only member of the Massachusetts delegation to vote Nay on the Amash Amendment to defund the NSA’s bulk phone data collection program.
The final vote count is here. It was a close one, 205-217, with a majority of Democrats (including almost all progressives) voting to defund the program.
What do you think Kennedy’s reasons are? Is he a actually a national security hawk? Maybe his stint as an assistant DA was reflective of something more than just getting some public service cred? Or is he just willing to go with the White House on anything?
I’d like to know, and I hope he releases a statement.
