Sen. Patrick Leahy has re-introduced the USA FREEDOM Act, a bill that would add a great deal of transparency, safeguards and oversight to the NSA’s bulk collection program.

We need to make sure Congress knows we’re paying attention and they need to do what’s right to ensure Americans’ liberties aren’t compromised. Tell Congress to support this important reform.

In California, a Department of Veterans Affairs inpatient pharmacy supervisor was placed on administrative leave and ordered not to speak out after protesting what he described as errors and delays in the delivery of medications to patients.

In Pennsylvania, a former VA doctor was removed from clinical work and forced to spend his days in an office with nothing to do, he told the Project On Government Oversight (POGO). This action occurred after he complained that, in medical emergencies, physicians who were supposed to be on call were failing or refusing to report to the hospital.

These people are among the hundreds who contacted POGO over the past several weeks after we joined forces with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) to seek inside perspectives on the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

In its 33-year history, POGO has never received as many submissions on a single issue—nearly 800 current and former VA employees and veterans contacted us.

Introducing www.VAOversight.org, where VA whistleblowers can work confidentially with POGO investigators. We're not just looking for more problems, we're hoping to explore solutions. Veterans deserve answers and accountability!

President Obama has promised that the federal government would take steps to make a real difference for those still suffering from the devastating contamination at Camp Lejeune.

But President Obama’s Department of Justice is undermining his promise. 
A crucial case before the Supreme Court could limit the ability of victims of pollution to seek help after they become sick.

This could have serious implications on how government employees can communicate with Congress.
