Umm, yeah, so when the stock market plummeted following the failure to pass the $700 billion bailout proposal in the House, weren’t we told that it was directly because of the House’s vote?  So, now that the Senate and the House have both passed the new bailout proposal (which includes an extra $100 billion in pork spending so that it can now be called an $800 billion rescue proposal instead of a $700 billion bailout proposal—try to follow that logic), and the market has crashed today nearly as badly, what exactly are we to glean from this bit of news?

Is this just a case of “damned if you do and damned if you don’t?”

If it is, I sure wish they had stuck with “don’t.”
