S&P Raises Texas to Highest AAA Credit Rating
« on: September 27, 2013, 11:18:51 PM »
Quote
Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement in response to Standard & Poor's upgrading Texas' credit rating:

"S&P's decision to raise Texas' credit rating to AAA is no accident, but further proof that the Texas model of conservative fiscal discipline is a key element of our strong economy, and a stark contrast to the out-of-control spending and rising debt ceilings of Washington, D.C. In Texas, we adhere to the powerful combination of keeping taxes low and government spending in check, ensuring Texas remains the best place in the country to live, work, raise a family and build a business."

Clearly another reason why we must elect Abortion Barbie.  We just cannot have Texas doing do well.

I best this will not get any coverage whatsoever in the Texas media.

You know the good as well as the sad thing is the GOP governors are all doing a good job and Obama is taking the credit.

Thankfully most people in those states know the truth save perhaps Ohio and Michigan.

Texas now has a better credit rating than the US itself does.  Perhaps Texas will become the lender of last resort to the federal government, now that it can borrow from foreigners more cheaply than the federal government can.

We will require some type of collateral...

Maybe they can offer is Oklahoma and Louisiana as collateral?  Oklahoma has always been like a little brother to Texas and we like Cajuns.

Well, there is the little matter - which some still consider unsettled - of the Republic of Texas; perhaps the rest of the United States can hock itself and become constituent states in a revived Republic of Texas - the United States of Texas (UST)?
