Harry Reid manages to push stocks even lower. We got this from Instapundit:
A hedge-fund reader emails: "Reid, Schumer, and Pelosi are widely assumed to be stoking a financial Reichstag fire that would be a win-win for the permanent government. Conventional wisdom holds that economic chaos benefits the "out" presidential party, of course. Destruction of private wealth increases dependency on the central government. And a humbled private sector makes spinning the regulatory ratchet that much easier. Cynical, shameless, and in plain sight."
Democrats are viewed, for some unfathomable reason, to be better on the economy. Therefore, they want to talk the economy down any time they can. Fucking despicable.
