Financial Reform Bill Appears Headed for Senate Floor

For the last three days, Harry Reid has tried to push the Democrats’ financial reform bill to the floor of the Senate. And for the last three days, Republicans have filibustered to keep it from coming up for debate.

Earlier today, the vote was 56 to 42–once again, not enough to break the filibuster–and the bill appeared to be entering a Groundhog Day phase, with Mr. Reid pledging to force Republicans to vote on it every single day.

Well, today, Republicans relented.
