Well at least we know you'll still have a job doing everything you can to make sure this disaster happens so that you can take advantage of American suffering politically.

It's mindblowing that so many people blame the 2008 recession on the Dems taking control of Congress in 2007. I understand partisanship but anybody who thinks that Nancy Pelosi and the Dems caused the 2008 financial crisis is obviously choosing to be ignorant. Here's an article on the financial crisis for anybody interested in the actual cause of it.

True that. The market is overreacting. Maybe I'll pick up some calls. Problem is....what has been overblown especially hard today?

You can count on it!

Like it was in 2008 before Lehman Bros' bankruptcy forced Bush and Republicans to admit the economy was collapsing?

Despite all the boasting, no POTUS or party controls the economy. If they did, there would never be a recession.

The economy is never all good or bad for all the people, all the time.

And what are you implying about the "fake news" crap? News shouldn't cover it? Reality is out here, please join us.
Yep, Maher is that powerful, lol.

A case of be careful what you wish for. Maher most likely has his money in stocks, not in a shoebox under his bed.

if Hillary was President she would have faced the same odds of a recession without an economic boom before.

The 2008 recession was caused by government policies aimed at "helping" people.
