House To Vote Friday
The Senate has passed a $700 billion bailout for the financial industry aimed at preventing the economy from plunging into a recession.
Democrats and Republicans teamed to approve the bill after sweetening it with tax breaks.
The bailout was approved in a 74-25 vote.
Both presidential candidates, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain, returned to Washington to cast “aye” votes.
