Bailout Bill Update

BAILOUT BILL UPDATE….The House has just voted to pass the bailout bill. Final vote coming in a minute.

UPDATE: The vote was kept open for a few extra minutes. The final tally was 263-171 in favor.

Democrats voted 172-63 in favor.

Republicans voted 91-108 against.

I know a lot of people were unhappy about this bill, but this is good news. It’s not the best of all possible worlds, but it is a demonstration to the world that America is willing to clean up its own messes.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
