38? ELEVEN Republican wimps couldn't vote against this bill? They were happy to kill it, so long as no one was looking?

God, I hate this party. Feckless, irresponsible jerks.

So wait, this means the final vote is on Sunday, right?

Final vote expected after 2pm today according to Bloomberg.

"The Senate voted 60-38 to limit debate and allow the legislation to move toward a final vote on the bill, which will come soon after 2 p.m. today Washington time."

theorajones needs to work on his math...

Ezra,
Perhaps a good task for the research desk would be to look at voting on the amendments regarding too big to fail and other strengthening amendments.

The R's without a doubt are going to say "this bill doesn't fix any of the fundamental problems leading to the collapse". The follow-up to that statement should be, "well, what did you propose or vote for to strengthen the bill?"
