WASHINGTON (CNN) - A working coalition of members of the U.S. Senate have reached a deal on an economic stimulus plan and a vote is expected some time Friday night, Senate sources said. Ailing Sen. Ted Kennedy, the Democratic senator who has been absent from the Senate since collapsing on Inauguration Day, is expected to be present for the vote, sources said.

Of course he will because the Kennedys are real Americans. They have always been for the people and it shows. The Bushes and the Cheneys have always been for themselves. They are the most selfish people on the planet. I can't wait to vote all rethugs out in 2010.
If they don't sign this bill I will sign their pink slips. Stop listening to your stupid leaders like Rush Limbreath and Stupid Sarah Failin. What morons.
George Worst President Ever Bush is a moron.
No to this offensive spending package! :(
Excellent! Thank you.
welcome back Senator, you were missed
GOD bless you Senator Kennedy! ROCK YOUR VOTE!!!
Keep 'em honest, Ted. Tell the Repubs that if they hurt schools, they can STUFF THIS BILL!
We asked and asked and asked for the media to give us some detailed information about the contents of this recent stimulus bill, but we didn't get anything from the media except going on and on and on about the differences between the Democrats and the ObstructiPubs.
Maybe AFTER it is approved by Congress, whoever they may be, the media will let us know what is in it.
Nothing on education, from what I hear.
Kids, they don't care about you!
Good Senator Kennedy. You are in our prayers
True patriots the Kennedys. Keep good health Ted.
Gov. Paterson deprived Caroline the senate seat. I bet Paterson will loose his seat in the the next election.
Greaaat! Glad he could cast one last vote to screw America.
Vote yes on a bill that he has no clue what is in it...... change........
WE NEED YOUR VOTE SENATOR KENNEDY TO SEAL THE DEAL. NOBODY UNDERSTANDS BETTER THAN A KENNEDY WHAT'S AT STAKE. THIS FAMILY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OUR COUNTRIES BEST PUBLIC SERVANTS AND UNDERSTANDS OUR NEEDS.
It is sad that the Dems appear to need a sick man's vote to get them over the top on this.
I, ALONG WITH THE HARD WORKING PEOPLES OF AMERICA, FIND YOU ALL A disgrace!!!!!!!!
Hope he isn't picking anyone up, there might be some bridges.
Say goodnight Teddie and good riddance.
RUSH WINS RUSH WINS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday Ron!!!!!!
nice hat sir.
No no no...wait for Geitner. Republicans should not support anything until you have everything on the table. It is a tenative deal at this point and no need to rush. Don't even let the presence of godfather change your stand. Obama is going for a long crazy walk this week-end so republicans have to time to go home to families and resume negotiations on Monday. One week to President's day. No rush. People can hold out till next monday for some good news.

I'd care, but it doesn't matter. Why don't you report on something that matters?
A true man for the cause, here you have a people who is ill yet he will get out to make his vote because he know what we need to do to help better this country and get it back where it need to be. Way to go Sen.Kennedy go and do what you do better and that is help make a different.
The Kennedys have done enough harm to this country. Go back to your compound and go quietly into the night, Ted.
