FISA Update 1/24
The U.S. Senate voted today to table the Judiciary Committee's version of the bill to amend FISA, thus defeating an attempt to strip the telecom immunity provision from the bill. In looking at the roll call, I noticed a couple of prominent names. Senators Clinton and Obama couldn't be bothered to do their jobs. They were too busy pandering to South Carolinians. If these two won't show up to vote on the most important issue to face the 110th Congress, then I'm wondering why I should show up to vote for either of them.
Please keep the phone calls coming to your senators. The ACLU makes it easy to find your senators' phone numbers, and provides talking points.
