Lawmakers Reach Accord on Huge Financial Rescue Vote is Imminent on $700 Billion Bailout Plan
Congressional leaders and the Bush administration this morning said they had struck an accord to insert the government deeply into the nation's financial markets, agreeing to spend up to $700 billion to relieve Wall Street of troubled assets backed by faltering home mortgages.

democrats asked for 150% of what they wanted and then ‘settled’ for 100%.
If McCain votes “present” or “yes” on this, he is toast. He MUST vote “NO” and not even “present”.
washington post is snowing you.
I have the feeling that this is all a boondoggle to save the asses of all those martini-drinking, limousine riding, very rich liberals who work at Goldman Sachs.
Does not seem fair. Why were there not more Republicans present?
Repubs will vote yes. This dog and pony show will go on and on until the death spiral hits rock bottom.
Time tests all. Your news is more than 12 hours old.
We’ll see whether Pelosi keeps her deal or not.
There were a few restaurants that did not throw out there spoiled food and served it anyway. These out to be shutdown after being dragged through the mud first.
This bail-out deal smells as bad as any spoiled food from all of the millions of refrigerators that lost power through IKE's path. But when you have a political party like the DEMs, which stink already, what can you expect.
I live about three miles from our local House Representative here in Round Rock, TX, and I have been burning up his ears about "MAN-UP" to these scumbags there in D.C. and not to vote for this piece of cr*p.
Though it will probably pass because of the limp-wimp leadership of the GOP, at least ACORN can get its NUTS roasted somewhere else.
Yeah, I thought it was suppose to be a clean bill with NO earmarks. Also, I don’t see anywhere where ACORN is out of this. How did that get attached to the main article?
Not happy, but would like to see Raines, Johnson and Gorelick go to jail for their part in this mess.
The Democrats are liars and non trust worthy.
Who's not to say that come negotiations between the House and Senate that these corrupt organizations like ACORN and La Raza don't get added back in at some point.
I vote no on the fiasco known as the bail out.
That’s an older thead. The current reports are ambiguous or say the ACORN funding is out. Does anyone know for sure or have any actual bill language?
And we are supposed to believe these shysters?
All smiles - Nancy Pelosi, Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson, right,
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, second left, and Sen. Judd Gregg, left,
announce a tentative deal on legislation regarding the financial crisis on
Sunday on Capitol Hill in Washington.
Take this deal and shove it.
I don’t care if it ever passes.
It’s a total Democrat rip off, timed perfectly to give that lackluster Chicago punk-thug a platform...the economy...Bush is an absolute moron and the democrats are absolute thieves...why would Bush confide in Chuck Schumer’s friend?
This isn’t going to do a thing except reward crooks which will make them want to steal more because the democrats will reward them more...as long as they get their cut of the action.
All this makes me want to puke...big time pay off here...you think they won’t give money to Acorn...I got news for you...Acorn is helping them steal the election for Obama...they’ll get them the funds they need one way or another....
If we really new the truth, Acorn probably helped them steal the last election too! You think they want to give them 20% for nothing....Oh no, Acorn is a big asset in stealing elections.
All this is shameful....I’d rather lose my retirement fund...than to watch these thieves drooling over their $700Billion scam...socialism is here to stay if this passes...
LISTEN YOU GUTLESS GOP WORMS! Paulson is not your "defender"! Defend yourselves like men! They should have immediatly walked out of the meeting until the agreed upon balnace of two - two was in place. God good!
