Watching a discussion and there is a general consensus that the Tax problem will have to be resolved . One former Treasury Official said it was crazy the way lobbyists could dictate Taxes. He said the Treasury spends $400 Billion to collect taxes which return $400 Billion.!!!!!!!

His suggestion is for VAT, as in the U.K. be the fairest way and ensure the rich pay as much as the poor. Apparently a Committee of 6 Democrats and
6 Republicans is to be set up to propose ways of reduccing the U.S. Debt, opinion suggests this will be no better than they have now. The only real
answer is for the U.S. population to reduce their borrowings.

The U.S. is facing a possible double dip recession. China and Russia are blasting the U.S. for it"s profligate borrowing which has jeopardised markets
around the World. Share prices around the World are falling.

Unprecedented US Credit Rating Downgrade





Credit rating agency Standard and Poor's has downgraded the United States'
credit rating for the first time in the history of the ratings.











The country's top AAA rating - which it has held since 1917 - now stands one
notch lower, at AA+.

Standard and Poor's (S&P)
said it made the move because the deficit reduction plan passed by Congress on
Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilise the debt situation in the US.

To add to the US' woes, the agency has also issued a negative outlook,
meaning there is a chance it will lower the rating further within the next two
years.

The downgrade could have several consequences for normal Americans.

If buyers are scared away from US debt, the interest rate paid on US bonds,
notes and bills have to rise to attract buyers.

This in turn could trickle down to mortgage holders and those wanting to take
out loans on big-ticket items like cars.



The downgrade will have far-reaching effects



The US government is reported to have fought the downgrade, with a source
close to discussions saying the agency's analysis contained "deep and
fundamental flaws."

S&P had sent the government a draft document in the early afternoon on
Friday and, after examining the numbers, the government challenged the
analysis.

In a statement, the US Treasury said: "A judgment flawed by a
£1.2trn ($2trn) error speaks for itself."

The US has been on notice from S&P since April, when they were told a
downgrade was possible unless Congress and the administration came up with a
credible long-term debt reduction plan.

Congress passed such a
package at the 11th hour earlier this week, narrowly avoiding a
default.


The two other main credit agencies, Moody's Investor Service and Fitch, also
warned the US it faced a downgrade.

Moody's has said the US will keep its AAA rating for now, but that it might
still lower it in the future.

Hi DjAshba and Welcome,

Common sense tells us that no one should live beyond their means but the U.S.A. is so indebted to China that in the event of a default the Chinese
could take over America. It appears there is only $228 billion in gold bars in Fort Knox and the U.S. debt will be $14.3 trillion with thios latest agreement.
The Banks and big business run Countries, not Governments and until we get good honest government it will always be the same and Joe Soap has to
pay for their mistakes for years to come.

Just announced, China is furious with America for the debt they have accumulated, and U.S is indebted to China for U.S. $ 1 Trillion. India too has
called for action from the U.S. and is calling for a new global Currency because of the U.S. and EC Countries problems . This is the end for the $ and
Euro IMO.

China has the right to demand action from the U.S.

I actually think the Republicans were responsible for this debacle. Obama wanted to tax the rich a bit more but Republicans were more concerned
about their seats at the next election. Now we have a Committee set up with 6 Democrats and 6 Republicans to try to come up with a solution but it"s
far too late and the Committee should have been made up of financial experts , not Politicians.

It should signal the end of socialism and will almost certainly bring about the end of the Euro. Obama can probably point his finger at the Bush administration regarding US activity in Iraq and Afghanistan for playing it's part in the US's budget deficit but he can't escape any criticism either. Obama is a little too left for the US and had spent two thirds of his life in various campuses talking to and listening to people who basically said and agreed with the same thing. He's a professor not a leader.

Maybe in all honesty the AA+ of the US, should probably be the "CCC" (or whatever their rating is) of Greece, but nobody has the courage to do that. That's where the likes of Standard & Poor's, Moody's and Fitch are nothing but a joke, with a plan to destroy the Euro, to save the US Dollar! When those guys from the other side of the Atlantic decide to be honest, maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel to leave this crisis.

Yes - I am all for people power - I know all about it. My Papa used to say to me if everyone stopped buying butter, even for one day, the price would plummet!

Same thing with goods from other Countries - but we have to remember that each Government gets reciprocal favours for allowing foreign goods to enter the Country.

There is also the Arab Spring - people power!

Bring it on!

Unfortunately the fact that Governments over-spend and go into debt is because they have borrowed on someone else's income - OURS !

Just announced, several Leaders in Countries affected by the American downgrading are having Telephone discussions to discuss a new Currency
which will be used around the World instead of the U.S. Dollar. No doubt Obama will get the blame for this but he inherited this debt and the Republicans
would not agree to tax the rich a bit more.

Angelique, while ordinary Americans will do this, the rich , yet again , will buy designer clothes and foreign goods at exhorbitant prices rather than pay more tax.

Top dog, we all would like to see every country adopt a better human rights policy, but these Countries have their own rules and the UN or any other Power won"t change their attitude. The Men also receive harsh punishment.

Just annoujnced, 23 American soldiers killed whan a chinook helicopter shot it down. The Taliban claiming responsibility , it appears some of the
soldiers were involved in the killing of Bin Laden.

Morning DjAshba,

The problem is , not just America, but also Britain, have got so used to buying cheap imports from China that now , we can"t afford not to. This
Worldwide problem is the result of Government in the U.S. spending too much on invasions of other Countries, Space programs, Banks lending too
much so that most people live on credit these days, Britain is equally to blame.

At the end of the day, it"s a case of bad housekeeping, the worry is, China struck a loan agreement with the U.S.A. a special one, AnnaEsse knows the name, whereby if the U.S. defaults China can come in and take what they want, regardless of who owns it.

Imminent Domain, Panda. When Hillary Clinton went to China soon after Obama came to power, she negotiated huge amounts of money from China in return for granting China Imminent Domain, should the US default.

Thanks AnnaEsse.

Cameron Mitchell has cut short his holiday and been in discussion with Sarkozy, with the amount of debt the U.S. has they will never be able to repay
it . Was it U.S. $ 4 billion or trillion Obama was hoping to reduce in 10 years?

Re: US 13.4 TRILLION DEBT

Post  Panda on Mon 8 Aug - 6:35

Tokyo stocks initially opened 1.4% lower despite a pledge by Group of Seven financial chiefs and central bankers to cooperate for market stability.


The benchmark index of MSCI Asia Pacific stocks outside Japan fell
4.3% to the lowest since September 2010, with industrials and consumer
discretionary stocks underperforming the most.


Stocks in Indonesia and Singapore fell around 5% and other Southeast
Asian markets lost 2-3% because of concern about the global economic
outlook.


US stock futures were down 2.7%, suggesting Wall Street will open sharply lower, later today.


As trading continues for the first time since the unprecedented
downgrade, the Sky News Business team brings you live coverage of the
world's markets.
