Senators try to Kill Patriot Act Renewal

Hooray!!!

A bipartisan group of senators told congressional leaders Thursday they will try to block reauthorization of the Patriot Act to protest the elimination Senate-mandated protections against “unnecessary and intrusive government surveillance” in a House-Senate compromise.

“If further changes are not made, we will work to stop this bill from becoming law,” GOP Sens. Larry Craig, John Sununu and Lisa Murkowski and Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin, Russ Feingold and Ken Salazar said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence committees. [emphasis added]

Score one for rational lawmaking. I’m actually hoping they get the cold-shoulder on this so it will become big news and more senators will back them.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
