AA RATED? REALLY!

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Professional Associates 74203

AA rated, really?  These are the same rating agencies that rated the sub prime mortgages as AAA.  Really.  The S&P is headed by a man who has no business back round.  So let's see who are our "equals" when is comes to paying their bills.

Abu Dhabbi, Belgium, Bermuda, China, Japan, Kuwait, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Solvenia, Spain, Taiwan and the United States of America.  According to the rating agencies France, Guernsey (?), Singapore et al are a better risk than the United States.

I don't know about you but this feels like a real slap in the face.  I feel betrayed and let down by all politicians.  We need to get term limits for congress.  We need to throw the career politicians out.  This continued action by our politicians is insane and dangerous.

We need change,

Good morning, Wayne. I have long been a proponent of term limits. But get real! Do you think that the ELITE will limit their reign or power?

You couldn't be more on target when it comes to term limits.  The entrenched pols are the ones who threw in the towels when threatened by their contributors in the face of real spending reduction.  They reverted to their reliable "smoke and mirrors".

That said, I believe we are AA+ which is identical to Greenland and Belgium.  The rest on that list are lower at AA.

Which is, of course, our next stop on the ratings ladder.

I believe that every candidate should be made to promise to vote on term limits.  If they don't, vote them out.

As usual you are right Lenn but we are AA negative which means they are letting us know that the trend is down.

Thanks James.

Isn't that a shame Alex.  The loony is worth more than the dollar.  Isn't that loony?

Amen-I heard last week on one of the talking head shows a senator saying "in my 25 yrs as senator, blah blah blah" and I thought there is the problem....why are you or anyone of the career pols who never met a payroll in office for 25 yrs? It is ridiculous.

Hi Conrad,

There are a lot of qualified people out there that could do a better job. Problem is getting them to run against the establishment of "Big Bucks". They tend to loose everytime.

And yes we need term limits to two terms like the president's office.
