Business Exchange Buzz up! Digg Print Email The U.S. Senate voted to advance a four-year extension of provisions of the USA Patriot Act allowing law enforcement to track suspected terrorists with roving wiretaps.
The Senate voted 79-18 to move toward a final vote on the provisions, now scheduled to expire at midnight. They would be extended until June 1, 2015.

You're seriously calling wanting to keep Medicare versus the gutting of Medicare that is the Ryan bill a cosmetic difference?
Cosmetic differences at best.
I tell you what, very few people will be directly effected by a renewal of these Patriot Act provisions. Tens of millions of people (if not hundreds of millions), including both of us would be effected by the Ryan gutting of Medicare. Cosmetic differences? I think not!

The differences again, are merely cosmetic in a completely failing economy, hell bent on filling autocrats munitions depots with our weapons, starting new wars, attempted murder on US citizens abroad by their govt., spending largely beyond our means, etc...etc....etc....
These tit for tat social issues aren't going to amount to anything if we can't fix the bigger picture. The patriot act effects EVERYONE'S constitutional rights. If you would rather have perceived safety and a broken medicare system though, I guess that's where the lines draw.

The future generations are far more my concern at this point over those who have blindly walked us into this dilemma.
Agree to disagree.

What's the Dem's plan to fix Medicare?
It appears the dem plan is to kick the can down the road....a long searched revealed no plan. Gee, I'm shock'd, serve'd.
Not that I care. again, these issues that people are blowing out of proportion aren't our immediate concern. Sort of in the way fixing the air conditioner in the car while the transmission is blown out (I'm sure Dan HATES this analogy... ).
