Yesterday the Senate passed a broad update of the law.
Today the House decides its more important to censure former White House counsel Miers and current White House Chief of Staff Bolten, than to address the ending of a very important law that is scheduled to expire at midnight on Saturday. The House has decided to exted the law for a couple weeks however.
It is worth noting, I think who voted for the law in the Sentate and who did not...
It is my understanding that McCain did vote for it while Obama and Clinton did not.
