This morning we admonished the House for using its time to pass meaningless contempt citations instead of debating essential FISA revisions that are set to expire at midnight Saturday. Now it turns out that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi adjourned Congress early to rush home for her daughter’s wedding.

The Heritage Foundation highly values the institution of marriage, but when you are third in line for the presidency, your priorities really ought to lie with doing your public duty “to provide for the common defense.” This is why the House has zero credibility in asking for another 21 days on top of the 194 days they already have had to permanently bring FISA into the 21st century.
