Pelosi: "Times Of Crisis Demand Decisive Bipartisan Action"

With the Senate having approved the Wall Street bailout plan by a decisive 74-25 margin, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is urging her fellow House members to do the same.

“Times of crisis demand decisive bipartisan action and I welcome Senate passage of the economic rescue plan, which includes robust safeguards to ensure that taxpayers are protected through oversight and accountability." Pelosi said in a statement released by her office.

"The House will act in a bipartisan way to restore market confidence as well as Main Street’s confidence in our economic future."

The House is scheduled to vote Friday on a revised version of the economic rescue plan that includes $110 billion in tax breaks not included in the measure it defeated on Monday. Both Democratic and GOP leaders, as well as the White House, hope that the addition of these tax breaks, plus billions in additional spending, will attract the additional votes needed to push the bill through the House.
