WASHINGTON, DC - Oct. 01: Senate Banking Chairman Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., Senate Budget ranking member Judd Gregg, R-N.H., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., during a news conference after the Senate easily passed its version of the financial rescue package Wednesday night, sending the measure to the House carrying tax legislation that some lawmakers will have to swallow hard to accept.

The House is expected to debate the measure -- which has White House support -- no later than Friday. (photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly).
