Forbes: S&P downgrade is 'outrageous'

Republican Steve Forbes and Democrat Larry Summers both slammed S&P's decision to downgrade the U.S. credit rating.
Forbes: "Well, I think in a narrow sense, it is a political move, and I think it's really - it'll sound strange for me to say it, an outrageous move. ... In a larger sense about the economy, I think the U.S. economy is in a perilous state. This recovery has been the worst from a severe recession since the Great Depression, but I am surprised S&P would play politics."

SOTU Sneak Peek...

Well, now that a deal on the debt has been reached, all is well in the world, right?

Not quite.

The markets continue to suffer from the contentious battle over spending in Washington, and a debt deal both Republicans and Democrats admit they despise did nothing to alleviate the pain.  The Dow has lost about 1,000 points in the past two weeks, and there are now fresh concerns over the country’s weak economic outlook.  Couple that with the July jobs report just around the corner and it’s no surprise investors are anxious.  The economy will be a big issue on this week’s show.

WH budget chief says no new revenue

White House economic adviser Gene Sperling says any deal to raise the debt ceiling will not bring in new revenue. "Nobody is talking about raising any revenues over the next year and a half. [Obama] has been pushing very hard to cut taxes with the payroll tax cut extension for next year."
