Brewtown Politico

Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to prohibit the FBI and Justice Department from using the USA Patriot Act to search library and book store records.

The amendment, offered by Rep. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), passed by a vote of 238-187. It's a setback for the power hungry Bush administration which is threatening a veto if the Senate passes the bill and sends it on to the president.

As Bush's approval ratings continue to plummet, he's losing more battles on domestic and foreign policy issues.
