WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- The U.S. Senate narrowly voted to defeat a proposal to immediately end the Treasury's financial market rescue plan as several moderate Democrats sided with the Republican minority in favor of the measure.

...
The Senate vote was 53-45, a majority in favor of ending the TARP, but short of the 60 votes required to carry the vote

...

Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Ct.) argued against the amendment, saying the TARP funds instead should be used to make loans to small businesses struggling to tap the commercial credit markets.

...

In the end, 13 Democrats voted for ending the TARP, most of them moderate members of the caucus.

...


This doesn't bode well for are argument to end the 60 vote filibuster rule.
