Is it me? because it seems to me that this whole debt ceiling angst can be solved by threatening to propose a bill that taxes credit-rating agencies (since they stand to cut America’s triple-A credit rating). Really, if you take the Republican’s modus operandi one step further, it’s not just me.

And where was the veracity of these credit rating agencies when they triple-A rated mortgage-backed securities????  I suspect in the pockets of the top 1% that finance the Republicans.
