Pelosi: 'Congress Will Work Its Will'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has just released a very cautious statement on the Senate's decision to go first on the bailout, saying little about Harry Reid's decision beyond "Congress will work its will."

Her full statement:

"Ever since yesterday's vote, House leaders have been in frequent communication with each other and the White House to find a plan that can win strong bipartisan approval in the House Many Members have offered ideas to modify the emergency bill narrowly defeated yesterday, and we are discussing those recommendations.

"The Senate has made a decision about how to proceed and what can pass that body. The Senate will vote tomorrow night and the Congress will work its will.

"House Democrats remain strongly committed to a comprehensive bill that stabilizes the financial markets, restores confidence, and protects taxpayers, and we hope Congress can agree on legislation in the very near future."
