Congress to vote next week on permanent Patriot Act

According to a press release from the ACLU and tons of other places, there is a move afoot to schedule a vote next week on Representative Sensenbrenner's HR 3199 which would completely repeal the sunset provision in the Patriot Act... you remember the part that the lawmakers told us made all of the other draconian provisions OK, because the whole act would go away in a few years... If you disapprove, please get on the horn and call, or get our your pen and paper and write, or fire up the fax machine and send your congress-people the message before it comes to a vote! Frankly, I'm appalled that this is being pushed through less than a week after the heinous bombings in London... looks like another attempt to use fear to get things passed in Washington.
