Congress passes a bill, before the election!

This final note today. Politics and the economy once again. Forget all that talk you've been hearing about nothing passing Congress 'til after the election. President Obama got a win today on his small business plan -- tax breaks and loans and the like. The Senate passed the multi-billion dollar bill this afternoon... barely. The House passed one that's almost the same, so it's basically done.
