A Tuesday Tumble On Wall Street


U.S. financial markets sank on Tuesday as the Senate postponed a vote on a Republican-drafted alternative to the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare), and investors looked positively at Sprint and negatively at T-Mobile amid talk that Sprint is chatting with Charter Communications and Comcast about a wireless partnership.
