Update 10/01/08 10:01 p.m: Is anyone else as confused as I am? Wanna be more confused? It’s passed the Senate, sort of. Now it goes back to Congress where they need to vote on it again because of well… I’m so confused… Ace… take it away:
In Case You’re Wondering… No, this doesn’t mean that the bailout has now passed in both chambers. The chambers must agree too, and vote for, bills with identical provisions and language.
Obviously this bill is no longer even close to identical to what the House passed.
So now it goes back to the House, which can either pass it as it stands, or the two houses can appoint conferees to work together on a bill that can be submitted back in both houses.
Update 10/01/08 10:00 p.m: The Bailout Bill has been passed in the Senate. The full bill is at the link below this update, just scroll down to see it.
Here is how the Senate voted on the $700 billion bailout:
|YEAs — 74|
|NAYs — 25|
|Not Voting — 1|
