Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Fantasyland) just pulled his “Plan B” vote on the fiscal cliff, having scheduled it out of ego and sheer incompetence.
Boehner knew this would fail, yet he scheduled the vote anyway.
Stock market futures — how the markets are expected to perform tomorrow morning — are dramatically plunging.
As of this writing, the DOW dropped over one percent, -137 points.
Talk about a cliff. Boehner just pushed the markets — which means, peoples’ savings, 401(k)s, and, ultimately, the economy — off the cliff.
