Tuesday: 3 percent repeal in the Senate

No final vote has been set for the bill yet. On Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and five other senators proposed an amendment that would prevent any funds in any bill from being used to compensate executives at the Federal National Mortgage Association or the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation in the form of bonuses.

As reported last night, the Senate is expected to vote at noon on the nomination of Evan Wallach to be a federal circuit judge.
