    Senate bailout vote scheduled tomorrow at approx. 9pm ET

    Flash: Senate bailout vote scheduled tomorrow at approx. 9pm Eastern; shamnesty tactics all over again
    By Michelle Malkin • September 30, 2008 07:59 PM

    Hill sources buzzing. A Senate bailout vote is scheduled tomorrow at 9pm Eastern.

    No bill details seen yet.

    How it will go down…There will be up to 6 roll call votes on the following items:

    (1)Motion to concur on the House message, H.R. 2095, Rail Safety;
    (2)a Dorgan amendment relating to H.R. 7081, the U.S. - India Nuclear agreement;
    (3)a Bingaman amendment relating to H.R. 7081, the U.S. - India Nuclear agreement;
    (4)passage of H.R. 7081, the U.S. - India Nuclear agreement;
    (5)a Dodd amendment to H.R. 1424, relating to the bailout package; and
    (6)passage of H.R. 1424, the bailout.


    Get your fingers dialing:

    202-224-3121.

    More details:

    [quote]The structure is this:

    The Senate will call up H.R. 1424, the text of which will be substituted with the economic rescue plan (a Dodd amendment which must have the consent of both the Majority and Minority Leaders). The only other amendment in order will be a Sanders amendment that will be handled by a voice vote.

    The bill will be subject to a 60-vote threshold for passage.

    UPDATE II: House Republicans are saying the Senate vote tomorrow is the work of bicameral, bipartisan negotiations.

    From a House GOP Leadership aide: “The Senate moving forward tomorrow with the economic stability package gets us one step closer to the bill becoming law – and that is a good thing. The decision is a product of bipartisan-bicameral discussions and we believe that changes to the bill will help us garner more support from House Republicans and smooth the bill to passage.

    I just faxed my two Senators.

    I am counting on you to stand up for the American taxpayer by voting AGAINST the Wall Street Bail Out Bill.

    1. The government has no authority to force American taxpayers to ante up a $700 billion ransom to save the hides of the rich robber barons on Wall Street.

    2. With a free-market, capitalistic economy comes the opportunity to succeed, and also to fail. By our Government getting involved we are taking the first step towards socialism.

    3. The irresponsible elites in New York City who caused this financial mess should bear the blame and the cost – not the American taxpayer. Wall Street seemed to heal it self Tuesday with a 500 point rebound. Let Wall Street take care of itself.

    4. The FBI needs to step up its investigation of Wall Street and politicians who caused th is mess and have been given money from these questionable banks. Let’s make an example of them if they are found guilty.
