Senate Passes “New” Bailout Bill

It’s still for $700 billion dollars.

It was passed by nearly 3/4 of the Senate members, 74 out of 100 voted for it.

Oddly, part of the bill was that the FDIC insurance cap would be raised from $100,000 to $250,000, part of a move to satiate public fears in the market economy.
