Did Rand Paul Outmaneuver Mitch McConnell?

Not that outmaneuvering Mitch McConnell is hard to do mind you. We’re just thankful that it’s someone on our side doing it for a change…

McConnell and others had been pushing the USA Freedom Act as a reform bill as the PATRIOT Act was set to expire, but Paul blocked that bill last week.

Politico noted that McConnell had planned to expedite debate on the USA Freedom Act in an unusual Sunday session, but with his statement Saturday Paul was using Senate rules to put the kibosh on the whole thing — and allow the PATRIOT Act to expire.

It’s funny when the Senate can’t pass when the voters are paying attention. Thank you Rand Paul!
