PATRIOT Act Provisions NOT Renewed

Apparently even a few Republans... Tea Party types, no less... voted with Democrats not to renew the expiring provisions, which were "... one authorizing 'roving' wiretapping and one allowing the government to pull all sorts of records and electronic communications from U.S. citizens."

Of course, the other GOPers will try again, but at least their midnight debate-limited effort fell on its face. And also of course, the most powerful Republan of all, Barack Obama, is beside himself in frustration that his arbitrary powers may be reduced. We live in interesting times.
