The House Republicans just stomped their feet and walked out of the House in protest to the FISA bill not being on the floor right now.
The Republican leadership is speaking. They are trying to spin this as being the exact same law that is in effect now. No – there wasn’t telecom immunity in the other bill. What I find most interesting is that our government thinks they can legislate away parts of our constitution.
Of course the GOP is going on that if it isn’t extended next week we will all die. Fucking fear mongers – one and all.
According to TPM the Republicans have been disruptive all day. They even went as far as to disrupt a memorial for Tom Lantos. Why do the Republicans hate Jewish people so much?
