President George W Bush has said that legislators will "rise to the occasion" and pass the Wall Street rescue plan.
In a statement he said there were still disagreements because "the proposal is big and the reason it's big is because it's a big problem".
President Bush is expected to resume talks with Congressional leaders later on Friday to try to reach an agreement.
He wants to pass a $700bn (£380bn) rescue package to buy mortgage-backed assets from US banks. .....
The intense discussions reportedly saw US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson literally down on one knee, begging Ms Pelosi to help push through the bail-out package.
... it's really nice knowing that the leader of the country really cares about what people think about the bail out ... not.
"There is no disagreement that something substantial must be done," he added.
