House Fails to Pass Patriot Act Extensions


BREAKING: In a vote this evening, the House failed to extend key provisions of the Patriot Act. The measure was brought up under suspension, meaning it required a two-thirds majority to pass, but it came up just short, 277 to 148.

The vote breakdown:

Yes — 210 Republicans, 67 Democrats

No — 26 Republicans, 122 Democrats

Here’s the roll.
