As you have probably heard, a backroom PATRIOT Act "deal" has been reached among the four Republicans who filibustered the PATRIOT Act reauthorization bill last December and the White House, which gave up only minor concessions. Read the Washington Post story, here. Karl Rove and Dick Cheney are using both the carrot (Republicans win by making national security an issue.) and the stick (Karl Rove threatened to cut off Republicans from White House reelection assistance if they criticize the administration's authorization of NSA warrantless wiretapping.).

See a summary of proposed changes at BORDC's press release is below. 

What to do: Keep the pressure on, and ask your friends and contacts to do the same! Commit to making at least one phone call each day to one of your senators or your representative. Find contact information here, or call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask the operator to connect you. Ask for a filibuster and for the changes needed to bring the PATRIOT Act in line with our Constitution. None of the changes we listed in our national call-in day talking points have been made, so they all still apply: Write letters to the editor, and continue public education and local action (for helpful resources, visit

We will keep you informed and let you know when votes are scheduled.

Don't let up! Thanks for all you do.
