Reid files for cloture on FinReg
A vote could take place to move to the bill as early as Monday. This suggests a couple of possible outcomes:
1) Democrats and Republicans strike a deal over the weekend and there's no filibuster.
2) Democrats and Republicans don't strike a deal over the weekend but Republicans fold and there's no filibuster.
3) Democrats and Republicans don't strike a deal over the weekend and Republicans decide to filibuster, either in an attempt to increase their leverage or to change the dynamics of this debate.
All that said, this isn't the end of the FinReg debate: The question here is whether Republicans will filibuster moving to debate and amend the bill. We're not yet at the point where they can filibuster an actual vote on the bill.
