stimulus Bill to finally be voted on tomorrow

Well we will just have to see what happens. They delayed voting for another day because some "rank and file democrats were upset and wanted time to completely read the bill". The decision to put off the House vote was made Thursday morning following a closed-door Democratic meeting, the second one in less than 24 hours to discuss the legislation. So it looks like support for this bill is really going down. MOst of republicans do not like and will not vote for it.Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania -- suggested they did not want to provide the decisive 60th vote for passage,so they maybe backing off of supporting it. Now some of the democrats do not like it and want more time to full read it before they decide if htey are going to vote for it. I think all the phone calls are starting to wear on them. They have to know that any senator that votes for this and if (when) it fails that they can kiss their re-elections goodbye. Especially with the huge public outcry against it. So what do you think? Will it pass? Can Pelosi strong arm her fellow democrats into voting for it? Will the three republicans continue to vote for? Who will this be the kiss of death for?
