Hillary Rodham Clinton backs yesterday's agreement between Congressional leaders and Hank Paulson and is slamming the House GOP for "posturing" and "partisan politics."
"The crisis that has seized our markets and millions of families throughout our nation demands our swift action. Any further delay motivated solely by partisan politics and posturing risks deeper financial crisis and catastrophe.
While legitimate concerns about the proposal should be and will continue to be discussed, obstruction for its own sake undermines the economic security of our financial markets and nation. The gravity of the current crisis compels us to put aside partisan wrangling and posturing so that we can proceed on a course of action that will ensure the stability of our markets."
