The Senate agreed to vote on Wednesday night on a $700 billion financial rescue package that will include a sharp increase in the amount of bank deposits insured by the FDIC, but also includes a package of tax breaks the House of Representatives has rejected. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid received unanimous consent from the Senate on Tuesday to schedule the vote on the revised package the White House says is needed to avoid a broad economic downturn. The rescue plan, which would allow the Treasury Department to buy problem mortgage-related assets from banks, had been the main hope for government action to unlock credit markets and head off a deeper economic downturn in the United States and abroad.
But Senate leaders attached the measure to a package to extend business and energy tax breaks that a number of House Democrats have opposed, which could imperil votes there after Monday's narrow defeat of the original bill. House Republicans leaders quickly embraced the revised package, while House Democratic leaders issued cautious statements. In a stunning vote on Monday that sent global markets reeling, the House rejected the bailout largely with opposition from conservative Republicans who may be lured to support a new package with the tax breaks. "We welcome the progress made by Senators Reid and (Senate Republican leader Mitch) McConnell toward a modified bill and to schedule a vote," said White House spokesman Tony Fratto. House Minority Leader John Boehner "was consulted on (the revised package) and gave it the green light," his spokesman said

McCain: I wanna go and moose-hunt with her. And then we can, maybe we can have a look. Couric: Experts say it'll take almost 20 years and it would …to achieve peak production … in ANWR. And it would still only cut foreign oil dependence by about two percent and only for a little while … so is it really worth … Palin: Yeah, I don't know who the … Couric: The risk? Palin: …experts are who say that it would take 20 years. As the governor of an energy-producing state, we're supplying 16, 17 percent of the U.S. domestic supply of energy coming from my state. And as the former chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, the geologists, the petroleum engineers whom I speak with are saying it can be done a lot quicker than 20 years from now. And, remember ANWR is a 2,000-acre plot that's in the midst of 21 million acres. That's not where the supply of domestic energy sources is, though, necessarily. I mean, that's not the be-all, end-all. Offshore is where the supply of energy is. And we'll tap into that.
