Front Lines: Triple-A downgrade hits day 300

It has been 300 days since the U.S. lost its top credit rating. What are we doing to get it back?

The market fell 160 points.

    Noone listens to S&P anymore. The S&P itself has lost credibility because of lying to the American public about subprime loan tranche ratings and profiting from the collusion with banks who bought ratings for a bribe. It's is the pot calling the kettle names. Why would the US govt want to bribe the S&P to gain positive ratings?

    i understand the mans frustrations.
    when i first found your show it was , the USA might lose it's AAA credit rating.
    figured it would just blow off after the new year's.
    but now 300/301 day;s later we have not gotten it back.
    or do we want it back?
    keep up the good work, keep asking question's and thanks.
