Sen. Dodd just asked for a vote at 5 pm EST, a little over an hour from now.

We will see if that happens.

Judd Gregg R-New Hampshire is in C-Span now,
to me it seems he is just doing interference for the 'too big, too fail' guys.




He is railing against something that he says is terrible. It got 10 of 22 votes in committee. It did not make it into the bill.
He is using something that is not in the bill (that he says is bad) , to argue that people should not support the bill.

Independent = Communist/Marxist

One or two Republicans have a chance to be on the right side of history

scrawl on bottom of screen says all 41 GOP said they would vote no.

roll call - still going on

so I guess hoping for 60 votes may have been in vain.

Where were you in Sept 2008?

When the financial melt down began?

What did you think? Many thought everything was going to collapse.

Hank Paulson, Bush's treasury secretary and a man with a personal fortune estimated at $700m, got down on his knees before Nancy Pelosi, and begged her to save his plan to rescue Wall Street


Quote:
Calendar No. 349

111th CONGRESS

2d Session

S. 3217

To promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and transparency in the financial system, to end ‘too big to fail’, to protect the American taxpayer by ending bailouts, to protect consumers from abusive financial services practices, and for other purposes.

and now this legislation can't get 60 votes?

The impasse may be short-lived because behind-the-scenes negotiations among Democrats and Republicans are aiming to craft a compromise that could win back Nelson and some GOP converts — perhaps by the end of the week.

Monday's vote was largely a piece of political theater. Democrats believe the GOP will end up looking like obstructionist friends of Wall Street. Republicans welcomed the chance to present themselves as preventing hasty action and holding out for better protection of taxpayers against the excesses of high-flying financiers.

"A party that stands with Wall Street is a party that stands against families and fairness," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who switched his vote to "no" at the last minute to have the parliamentary right to ask for Monday's vote to be revisited.

And Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said his party was opposing the bill because it did not do enough to ensure that the government would not again foot the bill for bailing out institutions deemed "too big to fail."

Obama said in a statement,

Quote:
"Some of these Senators may believe that this obstruction is a good political strategy, and others may see delay as an opportunity to take this debate behind closed doors, where financial industry lobbyists can water down reform or kill it altogether, But the American people can't afford that."

Reid Move Forces Real Filibuster, Traps GOP »

BY MICHAEL MCAULIFF

Harry Reid may have voted with Republicans this evening against taking up the financial reform bill. But he wasn’t doing them any favors.

Reid voted “No” in a procedural move that, under Senate rules, lets him bring the issue back up at any time — likely tomorrow. And, he engineered a vote — on a simple majority just a bit ago that is forcing senators to come back to the floor, with the sergeant at arms requesting the presence of absent senators.

It’s almost like a real, old-fashioned filibuster, except it’s Democrats streaming to the floor and railing against the GOP for blocking financial regulatory reform and defending Wall Street.

This, in theory, could go on all night, but is expected to end around 9 p.m. And, if Reid wants to keep voting with his friends on the other side of the aisle, he could continue this tactic pretty much as long as he wants.

You can expect repeated blasts at the GOP. They surely knew Democrats intended to hammer them, but we don’t think they saw this coming.

This could be interesting, Reid could bring it up for a vote again tomorrow and if the GOP votes lock step again, he can vote no himself and then call it up the next day and do it all over again.

Looks like the Dems will hold a 2nd vote at 4:30 pm (one hour from now)

to proceed to the Bill

at which time any Senator can offer up amendments to change or correct any real problems in the legislation

The news cycle tonight will be the Senate Hearings with Goldman Sachs complicit in the sub-prime melt down

and GOP trying to water down any meaningful legislation to deal with these problems.
