The $700 billion financial bailout bill has just failed in the House, being voted down 227-206. House Republicans voted 2-1 against the bill. The Dow has been fluctuating, but has been off as much as 705 points. 

UPDATE: There will be no revote today. The House is breaking for the Rosh Hashanah holiday, which begins at sundown.
