Exhausted as I am by watching way too much C-Span today, and cursing Max Baucus and his ilk six ways to Sunday, I still had enough energy to be delighted by this:
Senate Dems Unveil Telecom Immunity Repeal Bill
A group of Democratic senators has unveiled a bill that would revoke immunity for telecommunication companies that aided in the Bush administration’s warrantless spying. The Retroactive Immunity Repeal Act would reverse last year’s congressional vote to shield the companies from lawsuits. The bill’s sponsors are Democratic Senators Chris Dodd, Patrick Leahy, Russ Feingold and Jeff Merkley.
That was the blurb from the Democracy Now! website, which I have to check daily because the live broadcast has been bumped back to 8 am and I can no longer listen to Amy Goodman and scream at my dashboard on my morning commute.
Not much to say here. This is obviously great news, and perhaps the bill will slide in under the hyper-radar of health care reform.
Alien Abductee diaried this earlier today, with a whole lot more detail,but it seems to have slipped under the dKos health care reform radar too.
Rest up everyone, there will be plenty of hating on Kent Conrad and John Ensign to come, and you need your strength!
