U.S. may lose AAA-rating, Moody's warns_English_Xinhua NEW YORK, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- The United States my lose its AAA-rating if it can not control its deficit hike, rating agency Moody's Investors Service warned on Thursday. Steven Hess, Moody's lead analyst for the United States, said in a TV interview that the AAA rating of the United States is "not guaranteed." He said if the U.S. deficit does not drop to a sustainable level in the next three to four years, the U.S. rating will be "in jeopardy." The U.S. government posted a record deficit of 1.417 trillion U.S. dollars in the fiscal year ended Sept. 30. Stimulus package to combat the severe recession and a series of bailout rescues to banks and automakers have put a heavy burden on government spending. The Obama administration has predicted that deficits would top 1 trillion dollars through fiscal year 2011. Does anyone realize what the implications of what a less than an AAA rating would do to lending and interest rates in this country? Thanks Obama and Congress for leading us down the path of economic destruction!
