Pelosi: Vote Planned for Noon Friday
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) just told The Post's Lori Montgomery that the House will not vote on the Senate's approved version of the $700 billion Wall Street rescue plan unless there are sufficient votes in the House to pass it.
Then she said the House plans to vote on the bill at noon Friday.
So, you do the math.
Meanwhile, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), one of the House's fiscally conservative Blue Dog Democrats and no fan of the original bill, released this strong statement in support of rescue bill Version 2.0:
"We believe this is very important for the purposes of stabilizing the economy, restoring confidence in the markets, and ensuring that average working people in America, or nonworking people in America, just average Joe and Jane are not devastated by a continuing spiraling down of this economy, which has been happening. Almost every adviser I have talked to has indicated that the option of doing nothing is not appropriate. And that if we do nothing, the situation will get worse."
