    President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill that extends three Patriot Act surveillance authorities until late May.

    Obama signed the "FISA Sunsets Extension Act of 2011," which refers to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Surveillance authorities under that act were extended in part by amending the USA Patriot Improvement and Reauthorization Act.

    With Obama's signature, the ability of the United States to access business records, conduct roving wiretaps and monitor individual terrorists is maintained until May 27. The administration has said it supports a longer extension, and the Senate next week will begin working on a three-year extension.

    I find it odd that not one R voted for the ACA, yet now they can't get the votes to repeal that which they clearly didn't want.

    Apparently it IS the Oranguton's fault. Both Ryan and McConnell wanted a clean repeal of the whole thing, but the operation of the repeal would be two years in the future to give time for them to enact an actual replacement ... but Trump wanted repeal and replace, so they tried to give it to him.

    Poor little snowflake.

    President Trump is the supposed leader of the Republican Party- and has a bully pulpit.

    The reason that he is at fault for the failure to repeal the ACA is because he wasn't a leader.

    He didn't bring a proposal to Congress like he told his voters he would- he just nagged the Republicans in Congress to do something- anything.

    Far from being the deal maker he told you he was- he was a failed leader when it came to the repeal.

    One of the consolations of enduring his presidency is that his leadership is so in articulate and so unfocused he just hasn't been able to do anything that he needs Congressional support for.

    McConnell may have known just as well as McCain, and Collins and Murkowski and several others that doing healthcare without some bipartisan buy in was electoral suicide. Someone's gonna be pissed, but you gotta do something to do anything. And not doing anything was not an option.

    It'd take more than a week to do a bipartisan bill. So the only way to do was pass a law sunsetting Obamacare and force the dems to the table.

    The Orange Clown has no clue as to how to pass laws. He wanted to have a rally and claim "I win."

    So the gop's fucked. I can't say I'm sorry since they let the FAT FUCK get nominated and let the Russian fuck with the election.

    Now they're gonna do DACA and tax reform without any Dems. We'll see.

    Some on the left have no problem whatsoever, that the right wing had nothing but repeal, almost, in this particular, political situation.
