A Moody Moody’s

The Moody’s Investors Service issued a dire warning that they’ve put the U.S. government’s triple-A rated bonds “on review for possible downgrade given the rising possibility that the statutory debt limit will not be raised on a timely basis, leading to a default on U.S. Treasury debt obligations.” You remember Moody’s, don’t you? They once gave triple-A ratings for exotic investments built around debt instruments like toxic subprime mortgage-backed securities that were bundled into other investments called Collateralized Debt Obligations. “By providing the mortgage industry with an entree to Wall Street,” the New York Times recalls, Moody’s and other credit rating agencies “transformed what had been among the sleepiest corners of finance. No longer did mortgage banks have to wait 20 or 30 years to get their money back from homeowners. Now they sold their loans into securitized pools and – their capital thus replenished – wrote new loans at a much quicker pace.”

The McConnell Wobble

Although he has tried class warfare, empowering the unions, a rare press conference and blaming everyone within reach, the electorate grows tired of the rhetoric and sees only economic morass, a dwindling future for their kids and a country destroyed by the over-spending of a liberal administration and Congress.

The Debt Limit and Progressive Economics: The Definition of Insanity

The great physicist Albert Einstein once defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” With bailouts, stimulus and a flood of new financial regulations to fix the Keynesian economic failures which brought on America’s financial collapse, Professor Ben Bernanke warned Congress that his “independent” Fed is considering yet more stimulus – far from the meddling hands of the people’s duly elected representatives in Congress. “The unexpected [U.S. economic] weakness is forcing the Fed to reconsider its determination early this year to refrain from new efforts to stimulate growth,” reports the New York Times. “While no additional actions appear imminent, Mr. Bernanke said in Congressional testimony Wednesday that the Fed would be prepared to act if necessary.”
