With the country looking to overhaul the debt, we got some good news. Moody did not downgrade the U.S. The United States keeps its triple A rating, but with a dismal outlook.
On the downside, the U.S. government is losing $200 million a week in airline taxes with the FAA temporary furloughs. I just want to know if the Federal government needs my opinion. Do they not realize that furloughing government workers is not going to ease the economic crisis? These are real people with families and they buy goods.
Surely, the government must have a better plan.
