U.S. lawmakers on Sunday were set to sign off on a deal to create a $700 billion government fund to buy bad debt from ailing banks in a bid to stem a credit crisis threatening the global economy. After marathon talks into the wee hours of Sunday morning, congressional leaders from both parties emerged with an agreement that altered key parts of a Wall Street bailout program initially proposed by the Bush administration. The preceding week of negotiations over the rescue package roiled financial markets and altered the course of the U.S. presidential campaign less than six weeks before the election. "We've made great progress," House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters after the talks. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson lobbied hard for the package -- the largest bailout in U.S. history -- saying it would keep credit markets from grinding to a halt under the burden of bad mortgage-backed bonds created by banks at a time when it looked like home prices had nowhere to go but up. Congress was racing to reach an agreement before Asian financial markets open on Monday to avoid a repeat of last week's white-knuckle volatility. It was unclear when the House and the Senate would vote on the bailout legislation, or whether last-minute hitches might arise. U.S. President George W. Bush spoke with Pelosi on Saturday evening and news of a deal was welcomed at the White House.
