Reauthorizing the Shredding of the Constitution


The House of Representatives reauthorized the Patriot Act for one year Thursday.

The vote was 315-97 .

Many liberals in the House opposed the controversial act, saying it tramps Constitutional protections and civil liberties.

Well, they approved the extension of the expiring provisions of the act--not the whole thing. But still, you'd think the chance to stitch together even a bit of our Constitution would be a great opportunity.

The Senate already passed the bill, and the president will sign it.
So does this mean that pre-hope and change claims of shredding the constitution were just BDS-induced hysteria?
