Senator Paul & The Patriot Act

Prior to today’s cloture vote on Senate Bill 1038, which would extend provisions of the Patriot Act, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky offered the following thoughts on the issue:

You should know that the cloture vote passed the Senate by a significant margin, 74-8.  The eight Senators who voted no are:  Max Baucus (D-MT), Mark Begich (D-AK), Dean Heller (R-NV), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Jon Tester (D-MT).  Will any other Senators vote against the measure once it comes to a full vote on the Senate floor?

But don’t worry!  If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear!  Right?
