Debt Ceiling

28Jul11

The Associated Press cites: “At least one credit rating agency has already made it clear that unless that agreement includes at least $4 trillion in budget cuts over the next decade, the country’s AAA rating could be lost.

First there was Wisconsin and now Indiana.  Not just budget troubles or just anti-union governors, but instead we have Democrats who choose to run instead of doing their job.  Both state legislatures are facing a stalemate where the Republican-controlled legislatures are looking to pass some tough new laws curbing the rights of public sector unions.
