...stocks go down. SFGate:

U.S. stocks fell, driving the Standard & Poor's 500 Index to its longest slump since October 2008, after an unexpected drop in consumer spending increased concern that growth in the world's largest economy is faltering...Stock indexes extended losses even after the Senate passed legislation on raising the debt limit.

Wonkette has more. This shit is too depressing to even think about.
