You may already have read about the memo circulating on Capitol Hill from Moody's Investor Services. Moody's is on e of the credit rating agencies on Wall Street.

You can read summaries of their memo in many places. Here is a link to the weekly Standard's article. I cannot link you to the Moody's report which is available only to their subscribers. All you need to know is in the linked article.
