The Votes

The Dodd Amendment, which was to put the full text of the bailout into a passable legislative shell, passed 74-25.

They had to play this shell game to make the bill technically constitutional, since the Constitution mandates all revenue-raising bills generate in the House. So they made the entire $700 billion revenue-raising Paulson plan an amendment to a mental health bill filled with earmarky goodness to make it pass muster. Yes, this is craziness.

That aside, what I'm telling you is this is the vote that counts.

35 Republicans and 39 Democrats voted for it.

15 Republicans, 8 Democrats and one Independent (Sanders) voted against.
Senator Ted Kennedy, who was recently rehospitalized for his brain tumor, did not vote.
