The Latest

Via Taegan Goddard:
Since an agreement was reached last night, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wouldn't say whether she would vote for the proposal or not. However, multiple sources now say she will vote "yes" when the bill comes up for a vote later tonight.

The latest guidance suggests the House vote will be between 6:30 pm and 8 pm ET.

If the bill passes the House, the Senate will vote on the measure tomorrow.
At which point, if it passes the Senate, President Obama can be expected to sign it into law tomorrow.

We need the second coming of FDR to usher in another New Deal. Instead, we've got FML and the Raw Deal.

Close, but no cigar.
