The Agreement

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The text of the bailout agreement has been posted, but the link doesn't seem to work, although it probably will work in a few hours. In the interim, here is an article detailing it, with the link within.

The bill may not pass, with objections from the rank and file of both the far left and the far right. From what I can gather, whips don't have the necessary pass counts yet. The larger stumbling block appears to be the House Republicans: if they won't commit to agreeing, Speaker Pelosi will not bring the bill to the floor.

UPDATE: Here is a better link to the bill. House is to vote tomorrow, Senate on Wednesday.
