It's the worst single day drop in Wall Street history... The Dow Jones plunged 778 points today, following the House's defeat of the bail out plan.
The difference between the bailout plan's success and failure was twenty three votes. Nearly half of House Democrats and two thirds of Republicans came together Monday afternoon to prevent the $700-billion plan. Now that this plan has been vetoed, it's back to the drawing board for the legislature and that means more uncertainty for Americans.
