During an appearance on Fox and Friends, Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) got the status of the Patriot Act wrong and launched into a new big lie while blaming President Obama for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's crushing defeat on renewing provisions of the Patriot Act.
History was made today, as the Senate voted 67-32 to reform a key provision of the Patriot Act by scrapping the NSA's controversial phone metadata collection program.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted to extend the Patriot Act while Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wanted to kill both the Patriot Act and USA Freedom Act. Both Republicans lost as the Senate voted 77-17 to advance the USA Freedom Act.
