I'm home watching the vote while answering a flood of email, and let's just say that the deal doesn't seem to be a deal. In other news, the stock market is dropping like a fucking rock. It's down 200 points in the last five minutes, 700 points for the day.

Update: The 200 points came back, holding steady at a 500 point loss. The Speaker has held the vote open, and the Dems at least, seem to be strong arming their dissenting members to switch their votes to yes.

Update: The vote fails in the House.

Update: Final numbers are in for the markets. The Dow dropped 777 points, which is about 7% of total value. The S&P, which people say is more relevant to this sort if issue, lost 8.8% of its value.
