Lawmakers: We Have a Deal

The bipartisan group of legislators working on either a Wall Street bailout or a rescue package has reached "a fundamental agreement on a set of principles," Senate Banking Committee Chris Dodd said today. Racing to make a deal before a scheduled 4pm meeting at the White House, the lawmakers were optimistic the measure had enough support to satisfy both houses of Congress and President Bush, CQ Politics reports.

"There really isn't much of a deadlock to break," House financial services chairman Barney Frank told the AP. "But I'm always glad to go to the White House."
