Reid Preempts Paul, Slips Patriot Act in Small Business Bill Attempting To Prevent Patriot Act Debate

From infowars.com:  Harry Reid Moves To Prevent Senate Debate On The Patriot Act

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has circumvented a call by the newly elected senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, to debate the Patriot Act.

In order to prevent a filibuster, Reid performed “some procedural gymnastics,” according to Fox News, and slipped Patriot Act language into a House small business bill that is considered filibuster-proof.

In doing so, Reid has skirted objections to the bill led by Paul and has moved closer to extending the Patriot Act without debate. Democrats have applauded this effort to rush the extension into law without debate.
