Harry Reid (D) spoke first and credited Nancy Pelosi (D). Since we cannot believe pretty much anything he says, the results remain to be seen. The last time it was announced by the Democrats that an agreement had been reached, they were lying.
Rep. Blunt (R) stepped to the mic next and confirmed that VERBALLY they did reach an agreement, but that it remains to be seen if the wording will be such ON PAPER that the Republicans can sign on. I applaud the Republicans for standing their ground...it's about time. Barney Frank (D) began talking next (grrrrr), so I promptly turned the channel.
They expect to announce the final decision tomorrow.
**UPDATE: The "Mother of All Bailouts" bill should reach the floor Monday, says Barney Frank. So, all the "the sky is falling" reports last week about the impending doom of our financial markets if a deal wasn't reached by Friday? Hmmmm....
