Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) is urging President Obama to end a broad national security surveillance program that involves collecting data from telephone calls and Internet use.

“Sure, it bothers me, and I think it bothers you and every other American. It should be stopped as far as the broad base that they’re doing,” Manchin said in an interview with Bloomberg Television.

The Obama administration admitted Thursday that the National Security Agency (NSA) had been obtaining information on phone calls and also Internet traffic information from companies like Facebook and Google.
