Patriot Act? It did alot more then that.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
McConnell wants the Patriot Act passed without change. And he will get just that in the Senate. Though the House is always anyone's guess .

McConnell, GOP defend NSA
"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and other top Republicans on Thursday defended the National Security Agency’s surveillance program as vital to protecting national security.
McConnell and other Republicans also starkly criticized legislation that would effectively end the NSA’s bulk phone records collection program.
McConnell said that the USA Freedom Act, which would change the NSA program, would damage national security by allowing “untrained corporate employees” to collect phone data.
The bill would rein in the NSA by ending its current collection practices. To obtain data, the NSA would have to ask private companies for a narrow set of phone records that are involved in a particular case. The NSA would no longer hold the records itself.
McConnell criticized this as placing “a wall” between the NSA and the data. "
