Michele Bachman, Gene Green, Vote to EXTEND THE PATRIOT ACT "Spy-On-Citizens" Provisions

From: Rick Lux (by email from the FIRE CONGRESS Meetup):

You don't expect anything different from Gene Green, the corporate suck-up of the decade, but Michele Bachman?? She has recently been trying to pass herself off as this awesome constitutionalist. Chalk her up as another member of the GOP would-by constitutionalist neocon brigade.

Also of note is Houston's John Culberson who has recently received Ron Paul's unqualified endorsement. What's going on, Ron? Are you still endorsing Culberson? Why?

"You shall know them by their fruits" were probably be wisest words ever spoken and recorded.

Patriot ACT Renewal:

Patriot Act Without Reforms Passes House (Roll Call Included) posted 25th February 2010 in Democrats, Legislation, Liberty by An extension of the Patriot Act with no reforms of its abusive powers of unreasonable search and seizure against American citizens has passed the House of Representatives. The vote was 315 in favor of extending the Patriot Act without reform, 97 against, and 20 not voting. Search for information about the roll call of this vote on-line tonight, and you?ll just find this nameless tally of numbers. You won’t find the names. Why?

The reason is that the House Democratic leadership voted on the renewal of the Patriot Act in such a way as to hide the vote from the American people. Go to the web site of the Clerk of the House, and you?ll see no vote from today about the Patriot Act at all. What you will see is Roll Call 67, On Motion to Concur in Senate Amendments for H.R. 3961, the Medicare Physician Payment Reform Act. That's the vote on whether to extend the Patriot Act without any reforms of its abusive spying programs. It doesn''t look like it, of course, but the Patriot Act extension is what's referred to by Senate Amendments.

The Senate Democrats sneaked the Patriot Act extension into a Medicare reform bill, and then voted by voice vote to approve the amendment so that no politician would have to have their name attached to this shameless abandonment of liberty.

The House Democrats benefited from the maneuver as well, being able to vote on unnamed amendments related to Medicare reform, rather than having it on the record for everyone to see that they voted to renew the worst abuses of the Patriot Act without any effort to protect Americans from their spying powers at all. We here at Irregular Times refuse to go along with this underhanded political charade.

NAMING NAMES:

We?re naming names. Let's start with those members of the House of Representatives who got it right:

Representatives With The Courage To Vote NO:
Neil Abercrombie, Tammy Baldwin, Roscoe Bartlett, Xavier Becerra, Howard Berman, Rob Bishop, Earl Blumenauer, John Boccieri, Bruce Braley, Mike Capuano, Jason Chaffetz, Judy Chu, Yvette Clarke, Emanuel Cleaver, Cohen, Jerry Costello, Joe Crowley, Elijah Cummings, Pete DeFazio, John Dingell, Lloyd Doggett, John Duncan, Donna Edwards, Vern Ehlers, Ellison, Eliot Engel, Sam Farr, Bob Filner, Barney Frank, Marcia Fudge, Al Green, Raul Grijalva, Phil Hare, Jane Harman, Alcee Hastings, Dean Heller, Maurice Hinchey, Mazie Hirono, Rush Holt, Mike Honda, Hank Johnson, Tim Johnson, Walter Jones, Steve Kagen, Dennis Kucinich, John Larson, Barbara Lee, John Lewis, Dave Loebsack, Ben Luján, Dan Maffei, Carolyn Maloney, Ed Markey, Doris Matsui, Betsy McCollum, McDermott, James McGovern, Gregory Meeks, Michael Michaud, George Miller, Walt Minnick, Gwen Moore, Jerrold Nadler, Richard Neal, Jim Oberstar, John Olver, Frank Pallone, Ed Pastor, Ron Paul, Don Payne, Tom Perriello, Chellie Pingree, Jared Polis, David Price, Laura Richardson, Tim Ryan, Linda Sánchez, Loretta Sanchez, John Sarbanes, Jan Schakowsky, Robert Scott, Jose Serrano, Carol Shea-Porter, Brad Sherman, Jackie Speier, Mike Thompson, John Tierney, Ed Towns, Nydia Velázquez, Peter Visclosky, Maxine Waters, Mel Watt, Henry Waxman, Peter Welch, Lynn Woolsey, David Wu, Don Young
