Looks like we may have a deal:
House and Senate negotiators from both parties said Thursday that they had reached general agreement to move forward with the Bush administration’s proposed $700 billion rescue effort of the nation’s financial system.
Emerging from a nearly three-hour meeting in the Capitol, Republicans and Democrats said they would continue working through the day to complete the
legislative language and would begin final negotiations with the Treasury.
Oh well, maybe the next tantrum/stunt will work out better.
