No Deal Yet, Talks Resume Tomorrow
Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson's late-night talks with key lawmakers on the $700 billion Wall Street bailout have ended for tonight with no deal struck, The Post's Lori Montgomery reports.
Talks will resume tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m.
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said progress was made tonight but blamed Republicans for the hold-up.
The talks tonight included Paulson, Frank, Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.), though Bachus said he was not authorized to negotiate for his caucus.
Frank and other House Democrats have blamed Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who suspended his presidential campaign to participate in the bailout talks, for stalling the deal.
