Do We Call it a "Rescue"? The House Passes the Bailout Bill The US House has passed the new version of the financial Bailout Bill. In a vote of 263-171, with 91 Republicans voting "Yea" and 172 Democrats in favor, the changes in the bill put forward by the Senate combined with the news that the US job sector lost 159,000 jobs in the month of September lent a real sense of urgency to the vote. The bill needed a vote of 218 to pass, and it well surpassed that threshold.
