UPDATE: FISA revisions up for vote today

Later today Congress will debate revisions to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA.

The bill presented will not include retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.

Remember, the Republicans have told us we must have this bill to protect Americans, that if we don't have it, people will die.

Watch how many vote against it because it doesn't protect phone companies. If their own rhetoric is true, watch how many would rather protect phone companies than Americans.

Because of Republican stalling and general hijinks, the vote on FISA might not be until tomorrow at this point.

We'll keep you posted.

I just found out that Dennis Moore supports immunity for the telecoms. WTF?!? I know that he's a Blue Dog, but I didn't know that meant that he's Dubya's lap dog. Finding that out made me even happier that Congresswoman Boyda opposes immunity. WTF is Moore thinking?
