    I have no problem with the tax increases but let's get on with the spending cuts. Then we'll be talking about a serious attempt at attacking the US debt.

    All they did was back away from the cliff... They'll be making their way for it again soon enough.

    We can no more dismiss Moodys than we can dismiss private credit rating agencies that hold major power over our lives.

    Worse is that the Rs are saying they plan to make it a lot worse. They plan to force another big fight, a showdown and ultimately, another downgrade.

    Hard to believe the R hates their own country this much.

    Common sense warns the fiscal cliff will get us downgraded Gramps. Thanks to Reps, Dems and Obama for being incapable of doing their job.
