PATRIOT Act expansion vote - call Congress

Once again, the White House and Republican leaders pulled a last minute bait and switch on the PATRIOT Act - just like when it was originally passed. Bills from the House and Senate went into conference committee this fall - the Senate version including some important compromises - and suddenly this week, a new White House version came out, lacking compromises and actually expanding the PATRIOT Act. A vote is expected this week, and it doesn't seem to have happened yet, but that means it could be today.

I posted a diary on dailykos with details and links.

Please call your Congresscritters about it now - the vote is expected today

Also, if you have a dailykos account, please recommend my diary so more people will see it.
