A Question To Redstaters

Hello, I am not a constitutional attorney but I’m confused about the bailout package passed yesterday in the Senate. I did not think this type of bill could originate in the senate. Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution reads:

All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
