    If the market hates this news wonder how it will feel when the entire artificial propping of the markets is over with. You know, no more zero % interest rates, no more free money to buy a house, no more stimulus, no more buying MBS etc, etc, etc. The market is so used to these easy money policies by bubble ben bernanke that it will be far to hard for this economy to weather the storm without these instruments in place.
