White House Prodding Rating Agencies to Endorse Reid Plan: Report

The White House is trying to prod the agencies to accept the Reid plan, which gives them political cover. They’re trying to say Boehner’s plan creates political uncertainty in the market because it’s two increases.”
These people do not want what is best for America. They don’t care about the rules, or about what’s right and what’s wrong. Obama and his White House and his Democrat Party are dishonest to the cores of their cockroach souls and they will do ANYTHING to get what they want.
And, as we see above, that includes both lying and cheating.
