I was always concerned about government overreach, and wont shed a tear for its demise

A vote to extend provisions of the Patriot Act did not pass in the House on Tuesday. As Paul Kane and Felicia Somnez reported:

House Republicans suffered an embarrassing setback Tuesday when they fell seven votes short of extending provisions of the Patriot Act, a vote that served as the first small uprising of the party's tea-party bloc.
The bill to reauthorize key parts of the counter-terrorism surveillance law, which expire at the end of the month, required a super-majority to pass under special rules reserved for non-controversial measures.

Yeah I agree VB. Glad to see the TP is sticking with their guns and keeping the GOP in line. I swear I would love to see a true third party. I wonder what those special provisions are that will expire?
