But House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. of Wisconsin absolutely refused to go along with this bull pucky agreement.
"The fact is that a six-month extension, in my opinion, would have simply allowed the Senate to duck the issue until the last week in June," said Sensenbrenner, who had largely prevailed in negotiations with the Senate on a new version of the anti-terrorism law, only to see the compromise blocked by a Senate filibuster. "Now they came pretty close to wrecking everybody's Christmas. I didn't want to put the entire Congress in the position of them wrecking everybody's Independence Day."I am so glad that people are finally waking up because the U.S. Patriot Act is Crap.
