The more details I learn about the proposed economic
bailout plan, the more I think about the drumbeat to pass the PATRIOT
Act without due deliberation after 9/11.  In both cases, we were told
with extreme seriousness that failure to approve the legislation
*immediately* would have extremely dire consequences.
Some in the Senate are already raising that point - Pat Lahey in particular (he was particularly burned after co-sponsoring the PATRIOT Act, only to see it used to justify domestic wiretapping. And with Barney Frank as head of the House Banking Committee, and a lot of Republican's raising red flags (and worrying about their own investments), I somehow think some key people have learned that lesson.
