Senate Rejects Extension of Patriot Act

I am headed back to work and I had to get this out. This is amazing. They could not get the votes needed to block a filibuster. We Won.
In a crucial vote early Friday, the bill's Senate supporters were not able to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a threatened filibuster by Sens. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., and Larry Craig, R-Idaho, and their allies. The final vote was 52-47.
People do not want to give up their civil liberties and the patriot act has done nothing to stop terrorism.
