Jim Cramer weighs in on the Federal Reserve's rate cut. 

The Federal Reserve cut its benchmark lending rate by 50 basis points Tuesday.

The move, which was unanimously agreed by all voting Governors, clips the Fed Funds rate to a range of 1% to 1.25% and follows an emergency meeting of G-7 finance ministers and central bankers earlier in the pre-market trading session.
