USA Patriot Act Reauthorization reminder:

With the talk of major terrorist attacks on the front page of every paper and the news that British police captured these people after a year long surveillance operation, I thought as New Yorkers in the line of fire we should revisit the Patriot Act.

If you remember back in March of this year Washington was in full debate over whether or not to renew the Patriot Act that has been successful in preventing further attacks. Fortunately the Patriot Act was reauthorized but not with the help of most Democrats who voted against it.

With what’s going on in London and Democrat’s staunch opposition earlier this year against the Act that helps prevent these attacks, how is America suppose to feel safe with Democrats in power come November?

The proof is in the pudding. Here is how your New York Congressmen voted on the Patriot Act Reauthorization bill. Funny how the State with the most risk of being attacked had most of its Democrat representatives against protecting us.

How the U.S. House from New York voted: voted
