Mind the spin, though. ;)

"The Senate struggled to prevent an interruption in critical government
 surveillance programs early Saturday, rejecting both a House-passed bill and
 a short-term extension of the USA Patriot Act.


 The vote was 57-42, short of the 60-vote threshold to move ahead.

 That was immediately followed by rejection of a two-month extension to the
 existing programs. The vote was 45-54, again short of the 60-vote threshold.


 The Justice Department has said the NSA would begin winding down its
 collection of domestic calling records this week if the Senate fails to act
 because the collection takes time to halt."
