Detroit News: House OKs Bailout, but it Faces Stiff GOP Opposition in Senate

Tags:

David Shepardson and Gordon Trowbridge from the Detroit News Washington Bureau: The U.S. House approved a $14 billion auto bailout late Wednesday, but the bill's ultimate fate remained in serious doubt as the White House and Democrats struggled to win enough Republican support in the Senate. Supporters hope the measure's passage, by a 237-170 margin largely along party lines in the Democratic-controlled House, will increase political pressure on Senate Republicans to go along or risk being blamed for thousands of job losses that likely would result from a collapse of General Motors or Chrysler. Both companies have said they need the money to survive through early next year. It was unclear Wednesday night when the Senate might consider the bill, but Republicans earlier in the day expressed doubt as to whether there is enough GOP support for the measure to get 60 votes, the number generally needed to pass controversial legislation in the 100-seat chamber.
