Reminder: Congresspeople Are Not All Smart


Go ahead, dish out the accusations of "shilling for Democrats"—this floor speech by Louie "rhymes with Homer" Goehmert, on Tuesday's stock market correction, is some seriously stupid economic commentary.

In two months of talking about raising taxes and more regulation and one committee chairman talking about how he's going to undermine the President's national security policy — two months! — we have this terrible damage to the stock market, to the economy. Unbelievable.

Yes, the economy booms when Congress falls in line with Republican national security policy. It's like Lysenkoism, but for stocks!
