WHOA: The House just voted to block the extension of the USA PATRIOT Act. Nobody thought this was possible, but more than 55,000 Demand Progress members signed a petition urging members of Congress to vote against the extension. And it's working! Will you join them, by clicking here?
The PATRIOT Act makes a mockery of our civil liberties: It lets government officials spy on whomever they want, for any reason, without ever letting them know or giving them a chance to challenge the order in court.
The momentum is on our side, but the fight isn't over yet: The House leadership is almost certain to try again to pass the extension, and the Senate is likely to take the bill up next week. Please help block the extension by clicking above!
