Rand Paul Promises Come Sunday “I Will Force The Expiration Of The NSA Illegal Spy Program”

May 30, 2015

High drama in Washington this weekend with enormous stakes both for presidential candidates and the welfare of the nation.

It was announced this morning that Rand Paul plans to force the expiration of the Patriot Act Sunday.    He will make his effort by refusing to allow Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to expedite debate on a key surveillance bill.

How McConnelll thinks he can outmaneuver Paul is still a mystery to politicos.

This move by Paul is no surprise since he has stated clearly that he would not cotton to any efforts to pass either an extension of current law or a reform effort that has already passed the House.

In a statement today Paul said, “So tomorrow, I will force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program.”

This is the type of fever-pitched excitement that Allen Drury often wrote about.  The front pages of newspapers will be covered with this story and candidates will use the events in the next 48 hours to explain why Paul is not well-suited to be the Republican nominee for president in 2106.
