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

From  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.

Patriot Act’s Wiretapping & FISA Provisions Up for Renewal This Month

While these provisions are not even close to the worst parts of the Patriot Act, opposing these measures are a start.  We need to continue to fight for the government to obey the Constitution.  This is a tremendous opportunity to educate people about the principles of liberty and freedom.  We cannot allow this to be “passed in the middle of the night”.

When you are called a “liberal” or some other pejorative names, ask them this question: If we are so concerned about terrorism, why haven’t we secured our borders? It’s been over 10 yrs since 9/11 and we still do not know who is coming in to our country.

Here are several links about the provisions up for renewal:
