Mitch McConnell Scrambling To Let Obama Keep Failed Snooping Powers

Mitch McConnell is counting on his opponents not being able to muster the 60 votes needed to pass the USA Freedom Act, leaving them with the choice of either extending Section 215 of The Patriot Act or seeing all of the powers expire — including those that would go after specific terrorist suspects. McConnell cynically believes that, faced with that choice, enough of his colleagues will vote to extend all of the Patriot Act's surveillance powers. We urge you to contact your Senators and urge them to join Senator Rand Paul in supporting the Fourth Amendment Preservation and Protection Act as an alternative to the reauthorization of the Patriot Act. The Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044, call your Senator today.
