Today the Obama Administration will announce plans for the rest of the $700-billion set aside to save the banking industry. 

The president has promised an aggressive effort to combat the worst financial crisis in seven decades.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Tuesday the new plan would bring the full force of the federal government to bear in a partnership with the private sector.

"Right now critical parts of our financial system are damaged," Geithner said. "Instead of catalyzing recovery, the financial system is working against recovery and that's the dangerous dynamic we need to change."
