Bailout Plan Open Thread

The Senate is voting on the bailout as this posts — and it likely goes to the House on Friday.

Enough ornamentation has been added that passage is more likely this time around.

Well, what do y’all think about this new bill? What does it look like? Is it improved at all? What was added? What was subtracted?

(UPDATE: The SEC extended the short selling ban until three days after the $850 billion financial rescue legislation is enacted into law. It won’t extend beyond 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 17.)

This is an open thread, so have a field day.


What say ye?
