You aren't even close. The two situations were completely different. When we were downgraded it was because tea party members of congress were saying we didn't need to pay our debts. That made us a bad risk. Right now the issue is are we going to cut our expenses (at the cost of stalling the economy) but has nothing to do with meeting our debt obligation.
so what your saying is spend more money raise the debt and the economy will improve if that logic is correct then every family should rack up more debt and their lifestyle will improve this logic is a joke the government does not create wealth they only cosume it
