http://www.cnbc.com/id/45375696 Looks like the whole thing was nothing but wheels spinning. At least the 1.3 trillion cuts will happen anyways. They should have not bothered and just announced the cuts from day one. Will be interesting how this will impact the holiday trading week. Since its pretty obvious Obama will be relected (GOP candidates a total joke, not one viable candidate except Huntsman) We can expect 4 more years of gridlock. This will mean another good 4 years of selling options again.
