Out of the 3 proposed bills on extending the provisions, this one was the best.. only temp extending them through this year, the 2 in the Senate
extends them either 2 years or in the REP proposal's case permanently..
It's hard to forecast which one will actually be passed by both houses of Congress.. though I would think that the REP proposal won't make it out
of the Senate.
With Big Sis crying that we are at our most serious threat levels since 9/11, you know that one of them will pass, there's not enough new blood in
Congress to fight for the people yet...
With 5 more Senators retiring.. 2012 election changeover could actually bring in enough new blood to start voting these Patriot Act provisions out of
existence.. Maybe then they could tackle abolishing the DHS..
Wouldn't that be nice ?
