It's yet another Sunday on which we've witnessed major news break regarding the U.S. financial system. Today's headline however, may be the most critical of the bunch. Congressional negotiators say they've agreed to an emergency financial rescue package with the intention of pulling the economy back from the edge of a deep recession.
The House and Senate still have to vote on the bailout, and that won't happen today. What we're bracing for is the immediate impact this deal could have on the world financial markets
The agreement includes a few changes from the original proposal, but the price tag — $700 billion, remains the same. Tom Costello will break down the details of the plan. In addition, we've asked CNBC's Maria Bartiromo to join us. Maria will offer some insight on what supporters and critics are saying about the deal.
We'll look for you tonight on the NBC Nightly News.
