The TSA has become an acronym many Americans have come to dread. From too-close-for-comfort pat-downs to virtually nude snapshots, people are accusing the Transportation Security Administration of going too far time and time again. The federal government has spent an estimated 60 billion dollars on the TSA since 9/11, but the agency has seen an approval rating of only 54 percent as of late which, oddly enough, is more support than even President Obama or Mitt Romney has received in the polls. So why is the TSA more popular than politicians? Amie Stepanovich, associate litigation counsel for EPIC, joins RT’s Liz Wahl to discuss this.
