You Can Thank Obama For This Mess! U.S. Rating Likely To Be Downgraded Again

U.S. rating likely to be downgraded again

The United States will likely suffer the loss of its triple-A credit rating from another major rating agency by the end of this year due to concerns over the deficit, Bank of America Merrill Lynch forecasts.

The trigger would be a likely failure by Congress to agree on a credible long-term plan to cut the U.S. deficit, the bank said in a research note published on Friday.

A second downgrade -- either from Moody's or Fitch -- would follow Standard & Poor's downgrade in August on concerns about the government's budget deficit and rising debt burden. A second loss of the country's top credit rating would be an additional blow to the sluggish U.S. economy, Merrill said.

"The credit rating agencies have strongly suggested that further rating cuts are likely if Congress does not come up with a credible long-run plan" to cut the deficit, Merrill's North American economist, Ethan Harris, wrote in the report.

"Hence, we expect at least one credit downgrade in late November or early December when the super committee crashes," he added

Wild Thing's comment......

Of course Obama and the dems will not hear of making any cuts or major cuts to spending. So much money wated on the wrong things like Planned Parenthood and all the other liberal agenda BS.

When they downgrade us again look for Obama to find someone or something else to blame then himself. He has worn out the blame Bush routine.

It's interesting to note that many economists and political watchers expect the congressional super committee to fail.
