    As I stated a pair of weeks in the past: If I have been making the call, i could downgrade the Bond score of the bonds from the US government in the event that they do no longer end dropping components and end the Deficits! If the country can no longer act Responsibly, they do no longer deserve a physically powerful credit status. that is not a question of no count if or no longer they could default on paying the interest, all of us be attentive to they are able to pay. that's a controversy of Correcting their silly practice of pursuing Irresponsible Waste. the country merits to be down-graded and those with the money to loan to a great country are clever sufficient to determine that out for themselves. that's a controversy of certainty!

  • If you recall, most of the mortgage backed securities were rated AAA right up to the moment that the market crashed.

    It's the market that will determine the rating. And since there has been a flight to safety in the 10 year treasury bond, I'd say that the market is saying "so what!"

    Since it could raise the interest that we pay on the debt, thus increasing costs and service reductions - it will affect everyone. Sure, I'm one of everyone, so I care.

    You should. It would end up costing us trillions of dollars.

    What are your reasons for not caring?

    People will care when they see the consequences of it.

    Spending WILL be cut further now however (FAR more than the current "agreement").....and that is a good thing.
