CNN: Stocks skidded this afternoon, with the Dow's nearly 778-point drop being the worst single-day point loss ever, after the House rejected the government's $700 billion bank bailout plan. The day's loss knocked out approximately $1.2 trillion in market value, the first post-$1 trillion day ever, according to a drop in the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000, the broadest measure of the stock market.
$1.2 TRILLION lost because Repub's & Dem's couldn't agree.
Today was the biggest NET change in History, however it didn't even rank in the TOP 10 for Percentage change.
