U.S. Credit Rating Downgraded

August 5, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson said the following about the U.S. credit rating being downgraded to AA+ by S&P’s:

“The reckless spending by Obama over the first two years of his presidency combined with his unwillingness to make the cuts necessary to stabilize our fiscal crisis has led to the first downgrade of U.S. debt in history. Congress needs to come back to D.C. now and finish the job they started with the debt ceiling increase by passing the cut, cap and balance legislation which would put us on a path to restore our nation’s credit rating.”
