Re: S&P drops US "future prospectives" from "stable" to "negative"
This is long overdue, should have been downgraded a while back. The important subject here is without some real direction to fiscal responsibility and handling of our debt, this is just one of many indications that investor and world market confidence in the US government's handling of the US dollar and US debt is becoming a horrible joke. At this point the US will end up being last in the world at turning the boat away from massive panic filled political party interest debt spending towards some level of fiscal responsibility.
