Re: Credit Ratings Agencies
The problem is that no politicians want to address the issue.

Politicians aren't in the business of addressing issues or fixing problems. They are in the business of getting re-elected.

Because the conservative based has embarked on a multi-decade drive to reduce, if not eliminate, education among their core, they now find themselves in a position where the people who voted them in are mad, opinionated, and have LITERALLY NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!

25% of Conservatives believe that they are in the top 5% of earners.

That's despite the ability to LOOK UP the numbers.

These are people who literally can't tell if their income ($50,000 a year) is MORE or LESS than someone making $25 million a year.
