Politicians are a funny bunch

First we learn the NSA is listening in on select phone conversations originating from outside the country. What did congress do? Nothing. Then we learn that the NSA is collecting detailed call records of tens of millions of Americans. What did congress do? Nothing. But the FBI raids the congressional office of an obviously corrupt (or very very unlucky) politician and ALL the politicians are up in arms. Is it just me or are they all afraid of what might happen if the FBI pays them all a "visit"?
