BAILOUT BILL UPDATE….The House has just voted to pass the bailout bill. Final vote coming in a minute.

UPDATE: The vote was kept open for a few extra minutes. The final tally was 263-171 in favor.

Democrats voted 172-63 in favor.

Republicans voted 91-108 against.

I know a lot of people were unhappy about this bill, but this is good news. It’s not the best of all possible worlds, but it is a demonstration to the world that America is willing to clean up its own messes.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.
