Breaking News: PATRIOT Act Reform Caucus Announced

This arrives from the office of Representative Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the only Socialist in Congress who admits to it. But, as they say, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. And look at his fine allies from the right!

WASHINGTON -- April 27 -- A coalition of conservative and progressive members of Congress will hold a news conference on Thursday, April 28 to announce the formation of the Patriot Act Reform Caucus. The caucus will work to support initiatives that protect the safety and security of our nation, while ensuring that the laws we pass to fight the war on terrorism do not violate our constitutional civil liberties or diminish our system of checks and balances. The caucus will work with outside groups to educate Congress on the need for Patriot Act reforms and develop legislative proposals to ensure that constitutional freedoms and protections are maintained in any Patriot Act reauthorization. The caucus is chaired by Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Ron Paul (R-TX), and Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

WHAT: News Conference announcing the formation of the Patriot Act Reform Caucus by the caucus chairs.
