Reid says his plan will satisfy debt rating agencies
STEPHENS WASHINGTON BUREAU
Posted: Jul. 26, 2011 | 10:15 a.m.
WASHINGTON -- Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., today pressed for support of his legislation to solve the debt crisis, citing a report that it would satisfy bond rating agencies and avert a downgrade of U.S. debt while a competing Republican plan would not.



NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Standard & Poor's said Tuesday that reports that it would endorse one of two competing Congressional frameworks to secure an increase the U.S. debt ceiling are "inaccurate."

"Standard & Poor's has chosen not to comment on the many and varying proposals that have arisen in the current debate," the ratings agency said in an official announcement. The official statement echoes comments a spokesman gave to Dow Jones earlier in the day.

Ratings agencies have repeatedly said throughout the ongoing debt debate that they do not endorse any specific deals to cut long-term U.S. deficits.

Reports early Tuesday indicated that S&P was said to prefer Sen. Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) plan over the one being pitched by House of Representatives Speak John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Can the Dems tell the truth about anything when they are trying to stuff something down peoples throats? :roll:

Do you think our liberal liar is going to defend Reid or is he going to go on bashing Bachmann for something he has no proof she even had any control over? :?

In addition, the latest Republican proposal unveiled Monday by Boehner, R-Ohio, appeared in danger of failing to get passed by the GOP-controlled House, which would weaken the party's negotiating leverage on a final deal.

A vote had been expected on Wednesday, but the plan ran into major trouble Tuesday when the Congressional Budget Office said it failed to reduce spending and deficits as much as advertised. A spokesman for Boehner said aides are looking at rewriting the plan, and a congressional source told CNN on condition of not being identified that the vote was being postponed until Thursday at the earliest.

So under the standard set by this board- I would take that you would tend to believe that Boener lied to the country :???:

There is a huge difference in telling a lie and making a mistake. If we discussed all the times the CBO calculated differently from some DEM claims, we'd eat up all the bandwith of this server.

OMG Oldtimer, Boehner had his plan scored by the CBO and found out his wasn't going to hit his targets so he took it back and is reworking it. Verses Reid who didn't have his scored but is still claiming his would not trigger a downgrade. :roll:

Never mind the fact he lied about the Rating agencies approval, If he did not have it scored then how could he know his plan will save as much as he THINKS it will save. He can't and from what is being reported his plan is filled with gimmicks and fancy accounting tricks so there is no wonder he didn't want the CBO to score it. :roll:
