S & P is going beyond looking at if we are a trustworthy entity that will pay it's bill and is looking to set policy without actual insight as to the workings of the nation. After the mess of the mortgage debacle that the S&P recommended they need to go out of business or run for office, it's unreasonable to be so determined to set policy for a nation and to be willing to harm the global economy to do so. Shame on you. Yes, the gotp has done tremendous harm but the S&P has gone too far.

Someone needs to explain to Standard & Poor's that "entitlements" are something the American people have already paid for, and regularly pay for via taxes, and therefore are entitled to. It has nothing to do with the deficit.
