DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on the S&P Credit Rating Downgrade
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement on Standard and Poor’s downgrading of the United States' credit rating.
"The S&P downgrade specifically referenced the inability of political parties to work together. The indisputable fact is that until this group of Roadblock Republicans forced Speaker Boehner to walk away from a deal, America never came to the brink of a default and we never experienced a downgrade. This downgrade is the direct result of Roadblock Republicans."
