Senate Passes Crap Sandwich 75-24

October 2, 2008

Yahoo News reports that the Senate just passed this 700 billion dollar turd with the three senators in the race voting for it. Interestingly though, it is unclear whether or not the House will pass this bill. Jake Tapper reports that neither Steny Hoyer or Roy Blount, in the House, signed off on the bill.  They only need to switch 11 votes.  As you may recall, the failout failed 205–28 on Monday. The bill, which last week was 3 pages, ended up being almost 500 pages and loaded to the gills with “tax extenders and pork barrel projects. There is a chance that 17 democrats may switch their yea votes to nays.
