Yeah. Pretty much.
We have a brand new national catastrophe. There is no way to sugar coat it, no way to improve the sound of it. Middle class Americans are going to suffer a further decline in benefits, job security and educational potential while the “bond” market is protected (although it was doing just fine). Professional politicians have to be considered part of the problem. Holding the nation’s credit hostage is not the tactic of a responsible human being.
