Yep, it looks like the Republicans are having great success with their strategy of destroying the US economy in time for next year's election.
: I don't think the public has as yet realized how significant the S&P downgrade of the US is. The US dollar has long been the stable currency that most of the countries of the world hold (by buying US bonds). That goes a long way toward keeping the US economy rolling because it means the US can print as much money as it needs.
