#9 The FISA 702 Battle: Warrantless Searches Here To Stay? - Wendi Mahoney for UncoverDC

Many believe there was a final vote on the bill in Wednesday's Rule Committee Hearing. However, the vote was more precisely a procedural vote on a resolution or rule. 19 Republicans, many of whom are in the Freedom Caucus, voted with all the Democrats not to hear amendments related to FISA and warrantless surveillance. The vote failed 193-228. There are some Republicans, however, like Thomas Massie (R-KY), who believe the 19 may have ultimately tanked the entire process to amend FISA for reasons that may not be entirely transparent to most Americans. Yesterday, the 19 Rs prevented the resolution and, therefore, a vote on whether to advance the warrant amendment provision. Politicians use these tactics and strategies to push legislation through in the context of many other external and internal pressures.

#1 Democrats Should Love Tax Day - Tom Joyce for the Washington Examiner
It is the day that state and federal income taxes are due in most states. While some get tax returns for overpaying taxes the previous year, others must pay the government thousands to avoid prison time.
