Bailout Bill Sails Through the Senate
The pleasant surprise last Monday—the defeat of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout by the House (205-228)—remitted to politics as usual today when the same piece of legislation was crafted by the Senate and found easy passage there (74-25). So it returns to the House shortly. Hopefully, representatives who voted against the bill before don't change their convictions.
