The funniest reaction to S&P downgrading the US credit rating came from the most likely of sources — the Treasury Department.
In a document provided to Treasury on Friday afternoon, Standard and Poor’s (S&P) presented a judgment about the credit rating of the U.S. that was based on a $2 trillion mistake. After Treasury pointed out this error – a basic math error of significant consequence – S&P still chose to proceed with their flawed judgment by simply changing their principal rationale for their credit rating decision from an economic one to a political one.
Flawed judgment, alright. How about the US Government being $14 trillion in the red, and not having a clue how to dig their way out this abyss? What flawed judgment led the country into this mess?
