Welp, we’re fucked.

House Republicans just canned the bailout bill. The Dow has plummeted 400 points since they did so… this was about ten minutes ago.

They’ve had eight damn years to actually practice what they preach on the whole ‘small government’ thing (in spite of adding a whole new cabinet for the White House, a pretty fucking large new government department, crazy amounts of no-bid contracting in Iraq, etc), but only now decided to look it up, right at the perfect time to destroy what’s left of the economy. Thanks guys.
